Thatcham Youth was established in 2010 when a local young resident approached Thatcham Vision to ask for a youth club for his age group, he was 10 at the time. After lots of meetings with lots of partners and a lot of hard work, Vision Youth Club opened it's doors in April 2010!
In 2014 we took on responsibility for establishing a regular Roller Disco in Thatcham, following the success of the annual events held each year durign Thatcham Festival. Thatcham Roller Disco launched on 1st March 2014 and continues to be held on the first Saturday of each month at Kennet Leisure Centre.
Also in 2014 we were approached by Thatcham Town Council who were looking for a local organsiation to take over it's Playdays in the Park which the Town Council had run very successfully for two years. Again we agreed and held our first Playday in the Park on 30th July followed by another on 13th August 2014 at The Moors playing field.
To complement the Playdays in the Park we also held two Movie Mornings in August 2014 to give young people and families somewhere to go to be entertained for free in the school holidays. These proved successful and were followed by another Movie Morning in the October half term.
That brings us to 2015, and what a lot we have in store!
