Happy New Year! We hope you had a wonderful Christmas shared with those you love.
Groups are now back up and running and we’re excited for all that 2020 has to hold for the Youth Project.
Here are some of our highlights from 2019…
In February our Explorers group had a pancake extravaganza party, with games all pancake themed. Who’s hiding behind the pancake? Guess the pancake person. The most pancakes flipped… Our pancake parties are always a tasty hit!
Our Table Tennis Fundraiser on the 8th June was a huge success, raising over £1000 to go towards our 25th Anniversary celebrations. People signed up for half hour slots and together played for over 12 hours! The piles and piles of cakes definitely helped keep the energy up…!
This year the youth project lent a helping hand with the St James summer fete and flower festival. The young people made some beautiful paper flowers to be displayed within the church and we facilitated games and competitions for people to enjoy.
Of course, one of the greatest highlights for us as a youth project was the 25th Anniversary celebrations held in September. We were overwhelmed with the response of the village and those who used to be a part of the project. With an estimated 400 people joining us for a Family Fun Day at Ellenden Farm, we are so thankful for all who took part.
Christmas is always a highlight in the Youth Project. This year was no exception with the fun and games that we had. Our Adventurers group had a – rather noisy – film and popcorn night, complete with blankets and pyjamas. Whilst our Explorers and Ignite groups took part in their new favourite – Secret Santa Dash around the Range, followed by McDonalds!
Thank you to everyone who made 2019 such a fun year! Looking forward to plenty more fun and frolics in the year to come… Watch this space!
