December 18, 2020
Cramlington Town Councillor Barry Flux announced the results of the #Love Cramlington Youth Group Award.
The first runner-up was Cramlington Kids Club.
The multiple nominations for the Kids Club included comments such as:
The staff always go the extra mile to make the children feel welcome, cared for and part of a community.
They have helped lots of key workers throughout the pandemic and supported parents getting back to work.
They’ve managed to seamlessly provide a safe and welcoming environment for the children , something which I have no doubt wasn’t easy to organise but they made it appear easy!
The next runners-up were the 6th Cramlington Scouts.
It took the group just 5 days from lockdown being announced to running their first online Scout meeting’
Scouting is about teaching skills for life and the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts have continued with their weekly meetings, enjoying activities such as having home camps, playing group games, and engaging with a Cub leader from America.
They have continued with their awards, a Makaton teacher and Guide Dog Trainer helping with the Disability Badge work, linking with the Army Flying Museum for their Air Activities Badge and Geocaching around Cramlington for their navigators badge and all the time helping the youngsters become experts in online video calls!
And the winners are…Cramlington Voluntary Youth Club
As well as supporting the community, the CVYP team have worked tirelessly through the pandemic, overcoming barriers and obstacles to enable young people to get active again in their communities.
They have ensured youngsters receive support for their mental health though taking part in socially distanced activities such as archery, cycling, dancing, arts and crafts and more.
They have also provided targeted schemes for young carers and special educational needs groups.
During the pandemic CVYP have continued to provide a safe and friendly environment that meets the changing needs and desires of young people with differing ages and abilities. They have continued to deliver activities such as pop-up schemes which were supported by Cramlington Town Council and communicated with youngsters by hosting a series of Zoom Youth Groups.
Congratulations CVYP, you are an asset to our town and we applaud the support you give our younger residents.
