On 22 June, Project Body UK re-launched the Ruddington Youth Club for the young people of Ruddington. The opening event was well-attended by village residents and local Borough and Parish Councillors, who have been very supportive throughout the build-up to the launch. We would particularly like to thank Reg Adair for officially opening the club.
The club is currently open to all 10-15 year olds and sessions take place on Wednesdays at 7.15-9pm and Fridays at 7-9pm. In conjunction with these youth club sessions, we also offer youth gym sessions on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 3.30 – 5pm, and Sunday from 11-12am. There is a charge of just £1 for youth club sessions and £2.50 for youth gym sessions (or a monthly fee of £22).
The sessions are already proving popular, with an average turnout of 20-25 young people. We started with open sessions, but from the start of August, Wednesday nights will offer organised activities ranging from team building games and sports activities to gardening and cycle repair workshops.
All children must register to attend, which includes obtaining a parent’s signature on the application form. If your youngster is looking to attend, please ensure you pick up a form beforehand or attend the first session with them. Sessions are held at the Project Body centre at The Green.
We are also still looking for volunteers to help us run the sessions, so if you have a couple of spare hours a week on a Wednesday or Friday, please get in touch. How is it best to get in touch? – By attending a session.
