The AGM will take place on Wednesday 2nd February in Barntown Community Centre, at 8.30 pm. The future of the Youth Club greatly depends on the attendance of parents/ guardians of existing club members at this meeting.

An invitation to attend is also extended to the parents/ guardians of the current 6th class students from the parish, who will be eligible to join Youth Club in September this year. Please come along on the night - the meeting will be brief and we promise, you only get a job if you want one! Refreshments will also be served. We look forward to seeing you there!
