Leigh-on-Sea Town Council have been working in partnership with the Southend YMCA over the last year to provide a youth club for children aged between 8 and 12. The relationship was formed after previous Council Chairman, Valerie Morgan selected Southend YMCA as her Chairman’s Charity for 2018/19.
After the success of the Youth Club in the last academic year, the Town Council have recently agreed to increase the funding to allow for an additional youth club up to the age of 16.
The new Youth Club will launch on Thursday 5th September and continue weekly at the following times:
5pm - 7pm - 8 - 11 yr olds
7.30pm - 9.30pm - 12 - 16 yr olds
Each week children will have access to a variety of activities including board games, chess, indoor football, badminton & hockey, air hockey, table football, pool, arts and crafts, dancing, team games and projects.
The club will meet at Leigh Community Centre and benefits from on-site cafe Lorna & Lottie's, providing hot and cold drinks, sandwiches, cakes and more.
The club is free to attend, but spaces are limited. To book your place please go to www.bookwhen.com/southendymca.
