Christmas and New Year Update
Christmas is a busy time of year and it has played havoc with some of the plans but 2023 is just round the corner and it’s going to be great!
Cancelled – Silent Night
We’re sorry to announce that as the result of unforeseen circumstances the Silent Night Silent Disco has been cancelled.
Silent Night – Silent Disco
Book your ticket early and get your glitter on ready for Gillingham’s ‘Silent Night’ silent disco!
There are two sessions for different age groups and it’s absolutely free but you must book your ticket in advance because of the number of headphones available. Tickets must be booked individually – any problems then please get in touch – contacts below.
Media Makers 2
Our second Media Makers group have been having loads of fun working with film makers to create their own newsreels, using a mix of location filming and multi-camera studio shoots.
Runs, jumps, flies
October half term we held an Introduction to Parkour session in Harding’s Park. Young people came along and had tuition from two amazing tutors and were soon flying through the air, jumping over ‘horses’ and making the most of the physical environment including play frames and boulders.
Cinema and skateboarding top the leader board…
Cinema and skateboarding seem to be the most popular things that young people want access to in Gillingham. Over 400 people have filled in our survey so far and if you’ve not filled it in – then why not?! There might be other things that you are interested in but we need you to tell us.
FIRST YOUTH JAM – “THE FUNNEST DAY OF MY YEAR”
“The funnest day of my year” was how one young person described the day as he got out of his sumo suit after flattening his opponent and headed off to have a go on the giant inflatable ‘Hungry Hippos’.
Free event for young people!
Come along and celebrate the start of the holidays. With a skatejam run by Team Rubicon, free inflatables and the chance to try your hand at some graffitti art, if you’re 11-19 then this is a day for you.
Do you agree?
We asked what you would like to do in Gillingham – for FREE! and so far these are the results. (The bigger the word the more people said the same). Do you agree?
Zoe joins the team
We are delighted to announce that Zoe Matthews has joined the team as our young part-time Communications and Project Coordinator. Zoe is hugely community-minded and we are thrilled to have found someone who is local to Gillingham and a Gillingham School alumni to help us develop the project.
Orienteering in Gillingham
