We are well into 2017 and things are looking great. Membership is growing and the feedback is getting better. Whilst it might still be cold outside our Summer plans are well underway with  Watersports and holiday scheme the main subject at our management meetings.


Last year we reported Elephants at Youthdirect  well this year it seems to be the year of Monkeys here with our latest bookend looking grand. Wonder what will come next.

IMG_0381[1]Last year we had a small lathe  donated and some tools, the youth workers have been finding it therapeutic and just cannot keep off it. A couple of older boys  are creating some nice projects and we will continue to seek funding for more lathes to enable us to run a woodturning class.

With all things looking good and demand for hands on classes growing there seems to be a shortage of Tutors willing or able to teach these old-fashioned skills. Youthdirect are still seeking male tutors to teach Woodwork and/or ceramics in our after school club. If you know anyone please contact us.
