New In­ver­aray Youth Project com­mit­tee hosts first event

Argyllshire Advertiser - - LEISURE -

In­ver­aray Youth Project hosted a fes­tive arts and crafts night on Tues­day Novem­ber 14 fol­low­ing the for­ma­tion of the new com­mit­tee. The com­mit­tee will be chaired by Mar­garet Renton, sup­ported by vice-chair­man Andy Cameron, trea­surer Laura Blyth and Ann Liv­ingston, who is the new sec­re­tary. New com­mit­tee mem­bers in­clude Laura Best, Caro­line Wood, Wilma Wood and Ken­neth Renton. The project aims to pro­vide ac­tiv­i­ties and ex­pe­ri­ences for all ages in the lo­cal com­mu­nity in a safe and stim­u­lat­ing en­vi­ron­ment. Work­ing hand-in-hand with schools in the com­mu­nity, the or­gan­i­sa­tion hopes chil­dren will so­cialise, learn new skills and de­velop cit­i­zen­ship. Mar­garet said: ‘The meet­ing to form a com­mit­tee was very suc­cess­ful, and we had some great ideas from chil­dren who at­tended the evening, some of which were ex­plored dur­ing the craft evening and will be car­ried through into the com­ing year, such as sto­ry­telling, art ac­tiv­i­ties and drama.’ The group will host weekly ses­sions dur­ing term time from Fe­bru­ary 2018 on­wards, with ses­sions to suit all ages, from P1 to 17-year-olds. The next event will fo­cus on Christ­mas sto­ries, mu­sic and drama and will take place on Tues­day De­cem­ber 5 at 6pm at the par­ish hall.
