Welcome to our Pages for Young People
Coxhoe Parish Council delivers a range of services for Children and Young People.
With the withdrawal of investment by Durham County Council for young people services in 2016, the Parish Council thought it thought it was crucially important to ensure that our young people did not lose out. We have since employed and sustained a youth team who have delivered Youth Clubs in our Villages. We also have been trying out the provision of a playgroup for young children following the closure of the Village Hall Playgroup. However, due to alternative provision in the Village, we did not attract enough numbers to make the service viable.
Due to Coronavirus, our youth clubs are currently closed and have moved onto virtual youth clubs.
The Parish Council’s Youth Clubs are offering weekly online clubs with young people and a whole range of different activities on social media from sports challenges and science activities to arts and crafts and quizzes. These are open to all young people from age 7 onwards, they do not need to be a member. Zooms are set out by age group so that we can tailor each session to be age appropriate.
We are hoping to bring face to face clubs back soon, though they might look a bit different to before, as some activities won’t be able to take place and sessions will need to be pre-booked to limit numbers.
To find out more about our virtual youth clubs, find a range of activity ideas or support simply check out the Coxhoe and Quarrington Hill Young People Facebook page. To access the zoom links you will need to join the private groups.
We are also on Instagram @coxhoeqhillyouthclub.
We can appreciate how hard the young people are finding the restrictions in place and feel passionately about supporting our young people. We are always available for a chat if needed, email email@example.com or call us on 07900492126.
