ALL NEW - Colne Youth Action Group
Over the last few months Mr Walmsley has been working with Colne District Councillors and other Public Sector Partners in establishing the CYAG. This is a local charitable organisation aiming to reduce anti-social behaviour in Colne amongst 11-16 year olds by establishing positive activities for young people who live in Colne to join and get involved in. It is early days and aims to increase a variety of activities for children to participate after school. The activities are free but the children must join through membership of £3 per year.
The 3 initial activities on offer include:
- Football with Burnley FC in the Community every Wednesday at 5 pm on King George V Playing field MUGA off Skipton Road – just turn up and play
From 26th April: Biking with Go Velo (mountain, BMX & bike maintenance) at 5.30 p.m., every Monday – you cannot just pitch up for these sessions, as there are strict staff ratios and medical considerations, so you must register in advance for the sessions AND be a member of CYAG.
From 5th May Horticulture at the Open Gate Community Garden (off Castle Road, at the very top of the King George V Playing Field) every Wednesday at 5 pm – here you can learn about growing flowers and vegetables and get to take what you grow home with you
More activities are planned
