RWT Youth Programme

Since RWT began young people have been telling us there’s not enough for them to do outside of school. We know that there are lots of clubs and sports teams, but sometimes people just want a space to meet up with friends and just hang out or play games.

 

The geography of our area can also cause problems – we’ve always had a youth club at the Venue but many young people and children can’t get there. 

 

For 2017 we will be trialling a youth club for our younger residents and have commissioned the Youth Federation to lead these sessions. Their youth workers have all the training and expertise and are experienced in setting up and running community clubs like this.

 

We’ll be posting all the details of where the bus will be on this page, and on Facebook so keep checking back for updates.

 

Christmas Party | Updated 15 Dec 2017

 

The Youth Club Christmas party last week was amazing. Beside the Youth Fed Christmas card competition, there was a buffet, hot chocolate, rice krispie cake making, quizzes, music and some people were making paper snowflakes.

We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and we look forward to seeing you in 2018!

The Venue | Updated 21 Mar 2017

 

Kevin from New Era Boxing Club joined us at the Venue last Thursday. After using the rope ladder to warm up and work on our footwork, he taught us about stance and combinations. The demonstration was a big hit and he's since told us that a boy and a girl have expressed an interest in taking up boxing with his club.

After the session there was a kickaround in the main hall.

This week (22nd and 23rd March) we will be returning to Bethel Church.

Our Youth Bus launch was a great success! | Updated 24 Feb 2017

 

More than 100 young people attended our Youth Bus launch over two nights this week.

St Luke's Hospice kindly brought their double-decker bus 'Luke' along to Bethel Church and staff from the Youth Federation entertained children from all across the area with Jenga, bob it, Xbox, colouring, team games, drama, peg dolls and crafts. Hot chocolate and fresh popcorn were also being served.

Young people told us what sorts of activities they would like to see at future events and parents were able to sit and chat or learn more about the range of projects that we're currently running.

It's a youth club. On a bus! | Updated 8 Feb 2017

 

Rudheath and Witton Together are delighted to announce the launch of our new Youth Bus, running in partnership with the Youth Federation and St Luke's Hospice Winsford.

 

The new club will run two nights per week, every week between February and November 2017, and all nights will be run by a team of youth workers from the Youth Federation.

 

Our Wednesday sessions are for young people aged 8-11 (or school years 4-6) and will run 6-8pm.

As well as a place to meet friends and watch films the bus will provide opportunities to get involved in a range of fun activities – from crafts to karaoke to chocolate eating contests - and anything else you’d like to do (within reason!).

 

Our Thursday sessions are for young people aged 11-16 (or school years 7-11) and will run 6-9pm. For this group there will be fewer planned activities and more time for gaming, watching movies and socialising. But we’ll also have experts around who can advise on managing your money or staying safe online, or anything else you’d like to ask them.  

 

This is just the start. Once the bus is up and running we’d really like to hear from you about what you’d like to do, and as the weather gets warmer there are other activities and events we could run.

 

We will be launching the youth bus on Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd February, and we’ll be parked in the car park at Bethel Church, off Middlewich Road (CW9 7BF).

 

Both nights will run 6-8pm. The launch will be a great opportunity to come along and meet us and hear more about our plans – and get on the bus!

 

For future sessions the bus will be parked in the car parks at:

* Rudheath Leisure Centre, Shipbrook Road, CW9 7EL – Wednesday 1st and Thursday 2nd March.

* The Work Zone, Northwich Railway Station, Manchester Road, CW9 5LY – Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th March.  

* The Venue Community Centre, Gadbrook Road, CW8 7JL – Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th March.

 

A suitable location has been identified at each venue, and this area will be cordoned off to ensure safety of users. There will be access to toilets at all venues. 

 

PARENTS! There are ways for you to get involved too, for starters why not come along and meet the team at our launch event, hear about plans for the bus and ask us any questions.
