Westbury Young People’s Project (the youth club), which normally runs every Wednesday evening between 6.00 pm and 8.00 pm, is currently on hold whilst we try to find a new leader.
February 2020 update – Westbury Parish Council is working in conjunction with Westbury Parish Hall Charity and Beachborough School to support the young people in Westbury. Our first task is understanding the demographic and needs better. A survey was circulated to parishioners but if you missed it and would like to be involved please complete it HERE and drop it round to the parish clerk (10 Orchard Place, Westbury).
The youth club has arisen as one of the outcomes of Westbury Village Hall Project. It is an organisation set up for the young people of Westbury and supports young people and children to make new friendships, socialise, learn new skills and to make a positive contribution to their community. All children from Westbury and the surrounding villages aged between 8 and 16 years old are welcome. There is no admission charge, but most children come with £1 to spend on the tuck shop. All children under 13 years old will have to be signed in by their parents and signed out when they leave.
Puppet workshops, cycling proficiency, first aid sessions, animation and video workshops, outdoor cinema, graffiti, climbing wall outings, face painting, aerial extreme, Easter egg hunt, space bus – these are just some of the fantastic things that young people in Westbury have enjoyed recently. The village is extremely lucky to be able to offer such a wide array of things for young people to do.

For the future of this new group to be secure and successful we need volunteers to come forward to run and assist with running WYPP. If you are interested then please contact Cathy Knott – Email firstname.lastname@example.org
