Cousland Village Youth Club

Cousland Village Youth Club meets at the Village Hall between 6.30– 7.45pm on Wednesday evenings during term time. The cost is £1 persession (extra for tuck shop if desired).

The Youth Club has been running for around 25 years, the last 12 months under the under the watchful eye of Jennifer McDougall and Tracy Yoxall as well as our invaluable parent volunteers. As a voluntary group, all parents are asked to help on the parental rota approximately once a term. Currently Jennifer and Tracy share the weekly load with parental help and additional support from Lorraine Chapman.

We now also run a Senior Youth Club for youngsters in P7 upwards which runs on the first Wednesday of the month from 7.45 - 9pm.

The younger members of Youth Club recently had a meeting with our Community Policeman PC Kirkpatrick. They all had a wonderful time and even got themselves locked up in the police van!!

Activities

We have weekly themed activities according to seasons or the children / young people’s interest. In the past six months we have concentrated on Health and Fitness with the young people being able to create healthy smoothies/ make healthy choices and participate in dance lessons from ‘Upbeat Dance’. The young people progressed during this time to present a dance show at the end of term for village residents/parents which was very well received.

We also organise a Summer party, Halloween fancy dress party, Christmas party and trip to the Pantomime each year.
