St Helen’s Youth Club

The Youth Club is for Years 6 and 7/8 (from September).

This has run for the last eight years on alternate Fridays in the Cathedral Parish Hall and has proved to be very popular.

We are now inviting new members to join and existing members to renew for the 2013/14 school year, as we have to sort out Parent Helper rotas and CRB checks.

If your child is interested in joining or renewing, please collect an Application or Renewal form from the Cathedral narthex or email me at and return it completed as soon as possible to Clergy House.

Places are limited and will be filled on a first come – first served basis. Dave Whiteley.
