The Youth Centre wins Best Stall for 2019

Hello Readers,

We hope you are enjoying the summer holidays 🙂

In June we continued to prepare for the Fayre. The young people also made their own s’mores, painted ceramics as gifts for Father’s Day, had a go at the summer solstice Quiz with seasonal fruit salads and made their own Pizzas. The preparations and decorations for the Fayre have been going on since February. The young people worked hard over many weeks and made a large 2D mural of the Hollywood Hills, posters for the walk of fame, a large camera, a 6ft golden Oscar and put together a red carpet with golden cones and rope. There were many young people and staff who turned up on the day to help staff the Tombola. The highlight for us was winning the Best stall of 2019. The team entered the arena to be presented with the trophy and receive a £10 gift. In addition to this great achievement (it was only our second year) we raised a huge £380. Thanks to all the staff and young people who were involved prior to and during the day. I am so proud to be a part of these great Youth Clubs. I would also like to thank the Parish Council for providing us all with the opportunity to get involved with such positive community youth clubs and the Taverham Fayre Committee for facilitating the chance to celebrate this. “Thank you” to Tesco, Drayton for donating items for our Tombola and to Wensum Point Carpets who gave us a great deal on the red carpet.

Don’t forget our club/s are now supporting the Hallswood Animal Sanctuary and the Hogmedods hedgehog support by collecting empty crisp packets which they recycle for cash. If you would like to recycle more feel free to add to our collection during opening hours.
