There’s plenty to do for the young
ASHFORD Rotary Club and the Earlybirds Rotary Club are holding a joint open meeting on Thursday, October 23, for all schools, youth leaders and youth workers interested in finding out what there is on offer in Ashford.
The two organisations want to show young people in the borough what is available to make a difference to their own lives and the lives of others.
The event, aimed at children from infant school age upwards, is taking place from 6pm to 8pm at Furley Hall, Maidstone Road, Ashford.
Visitors will be able to drop in and visit stands run by the Brownies, Rangers, Girl Guides, Scouts, IMPACT (self-discipline education programme), and Hythe Rotary Club, which runs a youth event each Christmas.
Julie Meredith, youth officer for Ashford Rotary Club, said: “There are many organisations around the town which offer young people a range of activities, both informal and structured.
“We are trying to bring these together so the leaders can come along and tell other people what they are all about, as well as gathering information to take back to their own members.”
Any organisation wishing to visit or exhibit can contact Val Webb on email at email@example.com or Julie Meredith at Julie.Meredith@hft.org.uk
