Summer youth activities

Due to the current situation with Covid -19 this summer, all our activities will be outdoors, mostly on Ham Green. They will be organised in bookable slots with a very limited number of young people allowed so we can keep things safe. Strict social distancing and hygiene measures will be followed.
