Year begins for Celtic Youth Bray
FUN ORGANISATION DOORS OPEN TO PEOPLE FROM ALL BACKGROUNDS
CELTIC YOUTH BRAY, a voluntary youth organisation set up by and for young people, had their opening night 2008 last week.
CYB has been running successfully for 12 fun-filled years, since 1996. They provide a safe, fun environment for people aged 12 and up to express themselves fully and let go of their inhibitions without a worry in the world. They run every second Friday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and every Saturday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Little Flower Hall, beside Holy Redeemer church.
Fridays are themed nights and examples of these are Issues night, CYB’s got talent and the kind of somewhat out-there, Baggy Trousers night.
Saturdays are run as drop-ins, where members can pop in and play table tennis, handball, football or even express their artistic skills with arts and crafts, but most importantly meet other teens their own age, in a friendly atmosphere.
‘Our doors are open to all shapes and sizes, nationalities etc. Once your under our roof you’re a CYB’er, nothing more nothing less,’ said a representative.
‘Our Club is known nationally for our lateral thinking and the way in which we avoid the beaten track, try to forge a different path with everything we do. There is never a dull moment here!’
The careful selection of senior leaders is responsible and caring and they have all been a part of the closely-knit club longer than five years.
As such, they have a great respect for their club and all its members and protect both as much as is possible.
‘We are always open to newcomers,’ said a leader.
‘So if CYB sounds like your thing, feel free to drop in and say Hey! You’ll be glad you did!’
The Celtic Youth Bray club is the perfect opportunity for young people to break away from being stuck indoors and get involved in all sorts of activities. And by the sound of things, after 0going along for one night, they’ll soon be hooked!
