Youth Centre News
The Youth Centre is now up and running again after a complete refurbishment of the Sandringham Centre and, co-incidentally, a total change in both Staff and Volunteers!
So here is a brief introduction to the new Airplay Team at RAF Marham, in case you haven’t met them already!
Name: Angela Caley
Role: Station Youth Worker
Hometown: Biggleswade, Bedfordshire
Interests: Music, Cooking, spending time with my family
What did you do before this?: I was a full time Mum, and before that a Youth Worker for The Salvation Army in Bradford.
Why did you want to work with Airplay?: I wanted to work with young people again as I find them fascinating, and want to help make their time here at RAF Marham as beneficial and positive as possible.
Name: Yvonne Fennelly
Role: Sessional Youth Worker
Hometown: Loughborough, Leicestershire
Interests: I love reading, walking my dog, especially on the beach, Holistic therapies, particularly aromatherapy.
What did you do before this?: Most of my career has been in education support. My last post was as NVQ Assessor working with Teaching Assistants.
Why did you want to work with Airplay?: I enjoy working with young people especially in a positive and supportive environment.
Name: Keeley Ladlow
Role: Sessional Youth Worker
Interests: Horse riding, walking, music and food
What did you do before this?: Police Officer
Why did you want to work with Airplay?: Over many years of working with young people previously, I gained a good understanding of what they like to do and what it’s like to be a young person today. I also feel that as the wife of a serving person within the RAF I have good knowledge and personal experience of not only how it feels to be a forces family but also how it affects daily life and issues that may arise. I have personal experience of deployment as well as being posted and I enjoy working with young people help to provide support from airplay.
So what is going on at the Youth Centre now?
Loads of fun youth clubs with activities including art and crafts, sports, computer games, cooking, chillin’ out and more!
Who is it for? Anyone aged 8 and up
When: 8 year olds to Year 6: Tuesdays 6pm till 7.30pm
Year 7-9’s: Fridays 6pm till 7.30pm
Year 10 up: Fridays 8pm till 9.30pm (Year 9 can come to either Friday club, but not both!)
Where? The Youth Centre, in The Sandringham Centre building.
How much: Just £1
Why? Because young people need somewhere safe that they can go to socialise, have fun and develop new skills and interests.
Upcoming dates for 8-18’s:
Thursday 1st November: Half Term trips to Quasar Elite in King’s Lynn. See Marham Hub website for details.
Week beginning 3rd December: Christmas Parties! (More details to follow…)
The future of Airplay is in your hands!…
The current activities are just the start of Airplay Marham and we want to build on these over the coming weeks. We will be forming a Committee made of young people to help us develop the programme. If your son or daughter is interested in getting involved, please let Angela know!
If you have any thoughts, suggestions or questions regarding Airplay and the activities we provide, please contact Angela by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or arrange a time to pop in and have a chat. If your son or daughter hasn’t attended any clubs yet, we would love to meet them! You can download a Registration Form at the Marham Hub website, ready for the first time your child attends. Hope to see you soon!
