Leigh-on-Sea Town Council have been working in partnership with the Southend YMCA over the last few years to provide a youth club for children in the area. The relationship was formed after previous Council Chairman, Valerie Morgan selected Southend YMCA as her Chairman’s Charity for 2018/19.
After the success of the Youth Club in it's first year, the Town Council agreed to increase the funding to allow for an additional youth club to run for ages up to 16.
The Youth Club is relaunching on Thursday 10th June 2021 at Leigh Community Centre, the times are as follows:
4.30pm - 6.30pm - 8 - 11 yr olds
7pm - 9pm - 12 - 16 yr olds
Each week children will have access to a variety of activities including board games, chess, indoor football, badminton & hockey, air hockey, table football, pool, arts and crafts, dancing, team games and projects.
The club benefits from on-site cafe Lorna & Lottie's, providing hot and cold drinks, sandwiches, cakes and more and is free to attend, but spaces are limited. To book your place please go to www.bookwhen.com/southendymca.
