Great Bentley Youth Club NEEDS YOU!

Dear members of our village,

This appeal is to you!!!

We are grateful to people who are willing to serve the young people of the village. This year one leader will retire and so we are looking for one or two people who could take their place. This involves helping to run the club on about one Thursday a month to an agreed programme.

The Teenage Youth Club serves the young people of our village, who are mostly in the first two years of Secondary School, The last four years has been a great time with about 16 youngsters from the village coming to Club on a Thursday every fortnight to share together in a safe environment. When the club has been visited by leaders from the Essex Association of Boys & Girls clubs they have commented on what a polite and helpful group of youngsters we have.

We need your help. Parents, Grandparents and others with concern for the young people of our village. We need your help.

So the appeal is to you, please contact me on 250087 to enquire further.                                                            Robert Taylor
