This year we were delighted to be able to run a summer programme: nine days at the start of July followed by some weekend outings.
In November we re-opened our service, with a change of venue to Beatroute Arts Centre, in Balornock. It's a great space, and we have full use of the whole building and the garden. We are implementing new COVID-19 policies and procedures to minimise risk for both staff and young people.
In March we took the decision to suspend our service due to the coronovirus crisis. We hope to reopen in October, but this is dependent on Scottish Government and sector advice/guidelines.
We have updated our Data Protection and Data Security policies so as to be in line with the new GDPR regulations.

We are delighted that Children in Need will be funding two of our after-school sessions until 2020...we're hoping Pudsey will come for a visit soon.
We had a very successful Easter Programme this year - funded by Awards for All...many thanks!
