New Inveraray Youth Project committee hosts first event
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.
