This week at Horizon Youth club with the easter weekend coming up, the theme of baking was easter cakes. The young people took part in the making of rice krispy cakes. The activity was much enjoyed by the young people who enjoyed the sweet treats to celebrate easter. Along with this the normal sporting acivities were run in the sports hall, being football and dogeball, which are a weekly occurance and continue to be enjoyed by all of the young people taking part. This was run alongside the normal pool and table tennis in the small hall. Horizon Youth Club continues to run with an average of 20 youngsters coming each week.

Pool Comp.

This weeks Horizon Youth Club once again saw an increase in the number of young people attending, with new members bringing in a total of 22 young people. The main activity this week was a pool competition run in the small hall. The competition saw numerous young people taking part with the eventual winner being Joe. Alongside this being run in the Foyer was mothers day card crafting, in which a few of the attending youngsters took the opportunity to make a card for the mothers!

The planned activity this week for the sports hall was going to be quick cricket, but the young people enjoyed playing football and dodge ball so much in previous weeks that they wanted this to be run instead and as the club is for the young people, this is what happened! Again the activity was enjoyed by all who took part.

The next Horizon Youth Club will be held on March 13th 2013 at the Moorside Centre, Urquhart Road, Thatcham from 7pm-9pm. With the activities for this session being Fancy Dress Dodgeball, Paper Origami and Cookie Making. We look forward to seeing you all there!

Horizon Youth Club – February 27th 2013

Over the last year Horizon Youth Club has struggled with low numbers of young people attending the youth club. Following the closure of a youth club on Monday nights, the young people were advised to attend Horizon Youth Club. As a result of this numbers have risen significantly and continue to do so, with nearly 20 young people attending Horizon this week.

This week saw some various activities run by the club and with the help of a member of Berkshire Youth, Greg, who will be with us for the next few weeks. Greg ran activities in the sports hall with the assistance of Dan, Claire and Bob this week; including a football competition, which 12 young people took part in, with three teams, the red bib, blue bib and non bib team, consisting of four players in each. After several matches the non bib team were the overall winners with dominating performances in all but one of their games. There were dodge ball matches also run at the end of night.

There was lots of activity and smells coming from the kitchen, with many of the young people taking part in the making of pancakes, this session was run by two members from West Berkshire Youth Services. The cooking activities are always  a popular hit with the young people and we have some more planned for the coming weeks!

In the foyer of the centre this week we had stone painting take place, this is an activity that has run in the past and is welcomed by the young people who always enjoy decorating the stones in whatever pattern they desire! Along with all of these activates we also had the ping pong table and pool table set up in the small hall for our young people to use at their leisure.

With numbers of the club constantly increasing we are hoping for this to continue in the future. For next weeks session on March 6th 2013 we have a snooker competition, quick cricket and card making to make mothers day cars!

The session runs from 7pm-9pm at the Moorside Centre, Urquhart Road, Thatcham and entry is free for your first night, after that entry is just £1 per session! We look forward to seeing you there!
