Youth Clubs

We currently run two youth clubs, our Wild Club and Really Wild Club, as well as a regular 'Take Action' volunteer group for all ages.


Wild Club - Free (Donations gratefully received)

Meets on the second Saturday of each month from 10am to 12pm

This club meets on the second Saturday of each month from 10am to 12pm and aims to make the facilities at Sayers Croft more accessible for families with younger children to enjoy. Children aged 5 or younger come with their parents and enjoy a different activity each month - older siblings are welcome to join in. Activities are tailored to be flexible so that children and parents can dip in and out as they like however we ask that families arrive at 10am as activities may take place away from the Burrow. Our Wild Club is free but donations are gratefully received.
