The youth club runs from a modern, purpose-built youth space, The Yard, one side of the Green Hill multi-use community building (see below for the organisations we share the space with). It is a fantastic facility with kitchen, computing suite, table and console games and next door to our community green space, The Sentry.
It offers a safe, adult-led space in which young people can socialise with each other, in a structured but non-academic environment, and share and practice skills, including sporting, employment-related and life skills such as cooking, working with cash, group working and taking responsibility for a role within a team, etc. It is open to all young people including those with learning difficulties or disabilities.
The club is run by registered charity Moretonhampstead Association for Youth (MAY) which was established in January 1998. The MAY management committee includes young people, Trustees, the Senior Youth Worker Chrissy, and a representative from Moretonhampstead Parish Council.
