Our youth work staff are able to run free activities during the summer holidays for young people aged 4 – 17, thanks to funding from Children in Need and BIG Lottery Young Start fund.
Gymnastics tutor Kendall, is providing gymnastics training on different disciplines of the sport, including vault, beam and floor, which will take place in the newly refurbished Waverley Hall. The new craze of bubble football, is being run in the park by a company coming down from Glasgow for the day, but due to their health and safety restrictions, this activity is only available for children aged 8 and over. We are also running a basketball session, a painting session with an experienced artist and performing arts tutor, Sara-Leigh is providing a week of performing arts workshops in the Waverley Hall for young people interested in drama, mime, performance and improvisation skills. There is also a fantastic trip for young people aged 8 – 17 to go to the Sky TV studio headquarters in Livingstone to take part in a hands on skills workshop. We will travel by coach and young people will have the chance to see how TV is created and then to create their own TV report, using studio equipment. There is a small charge of £7 per child, to cover meal costs on the return journey from Livingstone.
All local children are very welcome to attend, whether you have been to any of our activities before or not!
Every child participating in any or all of the activities will require a completed, signed parental consent form. Forms and flyers can be collected from the Creetown Initiative office. Phone 01671 820654 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Please hand them in to Amy at the Creetown Initiative office as soon as possible, as some activities have limited spaces.
