Sunny September 24th was a day to celebrate ten years of an excellent project for our local young people.
Ellesmere Youth Project (EYP) organised a fantastic celebration for young people,who enjoyed the bouncy castle, dressing up in Sumo Wrestler suits, the bike workshop and graffiti wall. South Yorkshire Fire Service brought one of their engines too!
We all shared the delicious food: chicken, fish and lamb, with rice and peas, and then took part in EYPs Annual General Meeting. Chair Chris Bristow said,
“Young people are an investment. It is important to build lasting relationships as sometimes young people have a lack of faith in the system and in adults.”
Certificates were awarded to the year’s achievers, including Katie for effort and Samier for teamwork at the 5-day residential visit in April. Josh won best mechanic at the Bike Club, which continues to go from strength to strength.
EYP is keen to encourage volunteering, offering training and lots of opportunities. More Trustees are needed too. Anyone interested in Ellesmere Youth Project can contact them on:
