During the summer holidays Thatcham has benefited from some free activities for young people & families thanks to Thatcham Youth who ran three free events. The first was a reptile handling session, everyone enjoyed getting to handle and learn about the snakes, tortoises, lizard and more! There was then the annual Summer Family Fun Day with a whole range of arts & crafts, sports, bouncy castles and bouncy castles and the final event was a comedy show from Fred in the Shed which went do a treat with lots of audience participation from children and adults alike!
Thatcham Youth are proud to be a hosting three FREE events during the summer school holidays. All of these will be held at Moorside Community Centre, Uruqhart Road, Thatcham, RG19 4RE. The Family Fun Day has been kindly funded by Newbury Building Society and the Animal Handling & Fred in the Shed show have been funded directly by Thatcham Youth.

Here we are at the end of June and this year is just flying by! Its been as busy as ever here at Thatcham Youth.
Since my last blog we ran our annual Easter Family Fun Day in April, which was our busiest yet! We saw hundreds of people through the doors enjoying the free offering of arts & crafts, sports from Berkshire Youth’s SPLAT team and bouncy castles. It was a great day for it too with the sun shining! We received lots of great and positive feedback about the day, my thanks go out to the volunteers who came on the day to make it all possible.
We are excited to announce our Summer School Holiday Events that will take place during August of this year.
We kick off with an Animal Handling Session on 13th August. We then have our ever popular Summer Fun Day on 21st August and we round off with a show from Fred in the Shed on 28th August.
All events will be held at Moorside Community Centre, Urquhart Road, Thatcham. We will reveal more details closer to the time but keep an eye on our Facebook page for more.
