July 20th 2017
John Collins, our youth worker, is saying goodbye to us this July. He is leaving to spend more time with his two young children and will be much missed. He has worked hard over the last year to try to keep a struggling youth centre afloat with no volunteers and little help (sorry) and his efforts have been much appreciated. We wish him all the best in his new endeavours and hopefully we will see him next year at the Iver Family Fun Day. Thanks John and good luck!
Just a quick note to say thank to Buckinghamshire County Council and the Iver and Wexham Local Area Forum for the grant for £1511 allocated towards the Active Agers project at the Evreham Centre. This will help us purchase equipment to allow us to offer two drop sessions for adults at the centre to support local people engage in activities such as pool, table tennis and darts as well as provide a meeting place and social opportunities.
