Community Blog – The Yard – July update

There have been lots of fun and exciting summer activities happening at The Yard over July, with lots of our members coming along to our drop in family sessions every day of the week. This month our 18-25s transition club have been organising lots of fun Saturday evening activities which included hosting their very own ‘Y in the Park.’ This has been an annual event for the 18-25s club for three years now, but this year it was shaping up to bigger and better than ever. With the help from a couple local businesses and volunteers, The Yard was transformed with a main stage, barbecue area and an indoor and outdoor dance floor. Luckily the weather stayed dry and the night was kicked off by some of our young adults singing their favourite pop songs (including a number of Little Mix hits). Everyone was soon up on the dance floor, and enjoying the barbecue and ice lollies. The playteam had arranged for two local bands to come along and sing, and everyone had a great time dancing and listening to them.

Thanks to the money that we receive from the Vegware community fund, we are able to continue to organise these events for all the children and young people that attend our youth clubs.
