Football Tournament – February Half Term

On Tuesday 13th February Burgess Hill Youth Members from both the Junior and Senior club played in a football tournament in Worthing. They played other teams from all over the county. The event was organised and run by Albion and the Community. All the members had a very enjoyable day, even though the weather wasn’t great.

They also had the opportunity to have a picture with Brighton & Hove Albion player Pascal Gross.

Every Monday and Wednesday (term time only) a football coach from Albion and the Community comes to Burgess Hill Youth and coach’s all interested members.

Here is some pictures from the event

Young Carers – Cinderella trip !

Burgess Hill Youth took 20 young carers to see Cinderella on Sunday 21 January performed at Martlets Hall by Burgess Hill Theatre Club.

The tickets were kindly purchased by Burgess Hill District Lions and Burgess Hill Rotary Club. 

It was a very entertaining afternoon topped off by a picture with the main characters. Zoe Ball was also there watching the event and was happy to be in the team photo. Burgess Hill Youth would like to thank all those involved in making this a magical afternoon.

Young Carers Christmas 2017 Tea Party

Burgess Hill Youth Young Carers enjoyed a lovely Christmas themed tea party at Abbeyfield Nursing Home on Friday 22 December.  The event was an enjoyable experience for all involved and follows recent television themed programmes promoting intergenerational activities.  The Young Carers were greeted at the home and enjoyed Frozen themed craft activities with the residents popping in. Then they were welcomed into the large dining area where they were introduced to Frozen characters, who were staff dressed up for the occasion.  A trip out to Santa’s Grotto in the beautiful snow filled garden (courtesy of the homes premises team!) to visit the Elves to receive beautiful homemade gifts for each child was a pure pleasure to see.  They all came back in for a homemade tea party with the residents of the home present. The afternoon was completed with some Christmas themed reading including “Twas the Night Before Christmas”.  This was a magical afternoon for the Young Carers of Burgess Hill and big thanks to Abbeyfield Residential Home, particularly Heather Rogers, for the hard work gone into making this a most memorable experience for us all.  Burgess Hill Youth holds a programme of activities supported by Burgess Hill Town Council.
