Call out for Felix Girls Group from DigiLocal
DigiLocal been asked to support a club with Felix Road Adventure Playground and their Felix Girls group.
They’re hoping the club will run 5:30-6:30pm as an extension to their usual activities. Normally they close at 5:30 but it depends if they can get volunteers for a 4:30-5:30 club.
If any folks with WTH would like to get involved, please contact John Bradford.
You’ll need DBS checks eventually but those can be done for free, and as they’ll be with the youth group leaders it’s not critical to have that in place before it starts.
