Coronavirus Update – May 2022

All of our activities are now up and running again as restrictions have eased.  However, we continue to keep a close eye on the situation and up to date with any changes in government guidelines.  All clubs and activities have new Risk Assessments that are kept live to reflect the current situation. 

Our Multi Sports Club re-started again last summer and for after Easter we have 4 sessions of Basketball for both the 7-17 year olds the 18-25 year olds – see our Multi Sports tab for more details.   

We are back to regular Youth Club sessions, currently at the Life Centre, Tiptoe, so that we can make use of the outdoor space over the summer months, and our Drama Club is also up and running at Ashley Junior School.  Please see the relevant club tabs for further information.

We have just released our May Half Term Holiday Programme so please check it out on the Holiday Activities tab.

Meanwhile stay safe and do email us if you have any questions.
