Western Strathearn Youth Groups

Our partnership with YMCA has now come to an end.  Danyell has gone on maternity leave and is not able to work evenings after the birth of her child.  Accordingly the new arrangements for delivery of our Youth Clubs are as follows:

Primary 5 will now join 6 and 7 and continue to meet on a Friday evening in the Church Hall at a revised time of 6.00pm to 8.00pm.  S 1 will now meet with the teenage youth club.  Fiona Perry is taking charge of the young ones along with a number of volunteers, including Pauline Booth, Joan Murdock, Barry Curran and Eilidh Graham.  The first meeting will be on Friday 18th January and weekly thereafter.  Fiona has only just been appointed, so more details will be sent direct to parents and released via the Primary School.

The teenage youth club will now join with Logos in Crieff who have been running youth clubs for thirty years with considerable success. The Logos schedule is as follows:

Tuesday               7.00 to 9.00         :               S1

Thursday              7.00 to 9.00         :               S2 and 3

Friday                    7.00 to 10.00      :               All Secondary years.

Logos are planning extended sessions from time to time on a Saturday

For details of Logos, please see the Logos Youth Project site at Perth & Kinross Council web site.

The Church tested the demand from our teenagers by running the CoCo Bus on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings for two weeks at the end of January, but there was no take up. There is a good Bus service on Friday evenings, but not so good on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If any teenagers wish to attend on any of the evenings and have difficulties with transport, please telephone David Hustwayte on 01764 670271.

After Easter Logos intend to hold events in Comrie to stimulate interest.
