Tresham Benefice Youth Group

Summer Term 2018

Dear Parent/Guardian,

The Youth Group leaders have been busy planning the programme of activities for the Youth Group for the Summer Term. The programme and all the information you need for activities from April to July is enclosed. Unfortunately the Escape Room evening originally planned for 14th April will not now take place but we may be able to do this at a later date.

Basics for Youth Group meetings 2018:

  • Usual meeting time is Saturday 5-7pm every fortnight

  • Venues vary – please check the enclosed timetable

Highlights this term:

Treasure –Treasure Trail in Market Harborough to finish the term on 14th July. There is no charge for this trip but if your young person would like to invest in a bag of chips as we walk around the trail please send sufficient money with them to cover this. We will need to know numbers for this trip by 30th June so we can plan transport.

Youth-led service – as this was cancelled on 3rd March due to extreme weather conditions this will now take place on 16th June at All Saints Church Rushton. The service will be open to all and we hope you will come and support your young people.

What to do now

Please look carefully at this terms programme to ensure that you have all the details you need for each activity and share this with your young person. Hopefully they will be keen to take part this term.

Feel free to contact me on 01536 770178 (or by e-mail revruthcolby@gmail.com) for further details or with any queries about anything on the programme.

If you have not completed and returned a consent from for 2018 please do so and bring it along to the first meeting of the new term on 21st April, along with £2 towards the fish & Chip supper if your young person is intending to come along to that on 5th May.

Please ensure we have a current email address so we can keep you informed of any changes that happen and be sure to let us know if any of the details we hold change during the year. To comply with current Child Protection Legislation we need to have completed forms for each young person who attends Youth Group. No young person will be allowed to stay without the necessary information and consents.

As ever, your young people are welcome to bring friends along to the Youth Group, bearing in mind we will need the necessary consent and contact details for each new young person attending.

We look forward to the start of the new Youth Group term on 21st April.

With every blessing,

Revd Ruth and the Youth Group leaders
