News and updates:

Change of Wednesday session times
Thanks to everyone who let us know what they thought about Junior session times, which are now closing at 8.30 pm instead of 9. Staff and volunteers will be using the extra half hour for continued professional development, and to plan youth club sessions, to ensure that we continue to offer a sustainable and high quality service at The Yard.
As always if you have any comments please talk to us! We do understand that young people are sometimes collected late for lots of reasons, and that may be more likely to happen for a while after the times have changed, please do not worry if so. The 4 question survey about Junior session open times is still open: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/HYWFYTJ Thank you for taking the time to let us know what you think.

New Registration forms (GDPR)
We will shortly be producing new registration forms in the new year to ensure we are fully compliant with the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) which will come into force in May 2018.
