The Youth Club Pilot Scheme started on 23rd January 2017 and has continued to run on a weekly basis ever since. The Club meets weekly on a Friday evening at The Baden Powell Hall, Lansdowne and is available to young people in school years 6 to 9. The sessions are being led by Inspire to Aspire, which is a well established organisation with experience in running similar sessions elsewhere in the county. The Club will evolve over time to meet the needs of those attending, and grants will be applied for to fund future equipment and activities. Further information about Inspire to Aspire can be found here and details about the Youth Club are regularly posted here.
The Council was delighted to have received funding from Moore Friends to enable us to offer an Outreach service to young people in the village for 2017 as well as funding from Gloucestershire County Council's Children's Activity Fund which allowed us to purchase sports equipment to be used at our Youth Club sessions. Thanks to funding from Moore Friends and Cotswold District Council, and a venue being provided by Bourton Baptist Church, Winter Outreach sessions ran on Wednesdays in 2018.
