Project is a joint enterprise between Knebworth Family of Churches (KFC) and the
community at large. It has a management committee, consisting of
representatives of the churches in Knebworth, the community in general and
individuals directly concerned with the running of the clubs. Funding is
provided on a regular basis by Trinity Church's Borne Bequest and Knebworth Village
Trust and on an occasional basis by North Herts District Council,
Hertfordshire County Council and some local commercial enterprises.
Occasional fund raising events are also run by KFC. The project is supported,
in kind, by Knebworth Parish Council in the use - without charge - of the
pavilion located in the recreation ground and, similarly, by Trinity Church in
the use of its premises. This generous support from the churches and
community means that membership of the clubs can be free at the point of
operates two clubs, both meeting in term time from 18:30 until 21:00: the
Youth Café on Thursdays at the pavilion and the Friday club at Trinity. The
clubs are open to all young people of secondary school age. Although the
Youth Café is focussed on an older age group and Friday on younger, many
young people attend both.
The Friday Club
concentrates on young people in school years 7 to 9, although those older are
admitted. On club nights there is time to play soft football, chat to
friends, play pool, table football or have a go on the Playstation or Wii.
Cooking and craft activities are available and we also provide an internet
connection. In addition, the Club has organized a number of special events,
such as DJ and Street dance workshops, pamper sessions for the girls and
also a bowling night for the boys and bowling for everyone.
For young people,
mostly in school year 10 and above, we have the youth café in the pavilion
on Thursday evenings. Here young people can socialize with friends in a café-style environment, as well as play table tennis and pool.
