YOUTH URBIE BUS

A new mobile youth club bus is on the road in South Gloucestershire to help youth workers keep in contact with local youngsters. The vehicle is known as the Urbie – the Urban Vehicle for Information and Education. The Urbie will be used by the detached youth team whose work is funded by the council to get around the area and engage with young people.

Buying the bus was made possible by the support of a number of local organisations and businesses, including Merlin Housing Society, the Avon and Somerset Police Community Trust, engineering firm Renishaw, One Stop Carriers for Causes, Sodbury and Yate Business Association and Yate and District Rotary Club.

The Urbie Bus will be in Brockwell Park car park on Mondays from 3.45 pm to 5.45 pm for all teenagers and young people in Wick. Snacks and hot drinks will be provided.

The Friends of Wick School

*Wick C of E Primary School Swimming Pool Repair*

We are hoping to resurrect the school swimming pool this year, sadly we have been unable to use it for the past two years and children are missing out on this very valuable life skill. The Friends of Wick School have started fund raising again and hope to contribute towards the cost of getting it back up and running once again.  As well as the school children the pool has previously been used by some parents and local residents of Wick and had become quite a community feature. Due to the high cost of refurbishment, we are asking for help from other sources, so that we can get it back up and running in order to give the children the opportunity to gain this very important life-saving skill within our village. Any contribution towards the cost of repairing the pool so we can all use it once again would be very gratefully received.

I’d really appreciate it if you could share or donate to this GoFundMe,

Regards Cllr Gaive Golding
