Similar cooperation has resulted in the Youth Group being able to meet in the Village Hall each Friday evening, and in the Westfield Hall on Monday evenings. Providing sponsorship can continue we are hopeful these will become long-term arrangements.
If you are interested in becoming involved with the Youth Group, or know of any youths between 13 and 18 years of age resident within the Colnbrook with Poyle ward who are, please call the Youth Team on

01628696021 and ask to speak to Elise or Nathan.

The current timetable is as follows

Mondays – Westfield Hall

The CCA has been able to provide the youth group with a regular weekly evening in the Westfield Hall.

The meeting will be on a Monday evening from 5.30pm-8.30pm with the first being on Monday 10th January 2011

The full list of dates is as follows:

January: 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st
February: 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th
March: 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th
April: 4th, 11th, 18th
May: 9th, 16th, 23rd
June: 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th
July: 4th, 11th

These sessions involve project based activities and workshops. The group also plan to have music production, sports and art/graffiti work subject to availability of equipment and materials.

In view of the new nature of this venue certain equipment is required in order to facilitate these activities and some entertainment.
The wish list is as follows, if you have, or know of anybody who does, any of the items listed that could be donated to the group please call Charles on 07940131778 or email me on charlesburke_cca@live.co.uk

  • Games Console (XBOX)
  • Table tennis and equipment
  • CD player/radio
  • Art and Graffiti equipment
  • Basketball/football
  • Pens and Paper big size to display work
  • Giant games (Jenga, Connect 4)
  • Table Football
  • Indoor Hockey sets
  • Circus equipment (juggling balls, diablo’s, plate spinning)
  • We would also like to get hold of some display boards so that the young people can display their artwork.

The CCA and the Youth team are seeking funding for the above but with cuts all around any donations would be gratefully received.

The young people have volunteered to redecorate the Westfield Hall if they had the paint and brushes to do the work. Does anybody know where we might go to elicit a donation (money or materials) for this work?

Wednesdays – Youth Bus

The Youth Bus parks in the Village Hall Car Park from 6.00pm-9.00pm, with activities such as Play station 3, Nintendo Wii, Music Mixing Decks, Computers, Apple Macs, Boards Games, Quizzes and also offers the chance to come and “chill out and chat”.

Thursdays – Outreach

Thursday is Outreach time for roughly 2-3 hours between 4-8ish, which involves walking round all the areas of Colnbrook, hopefully meeting young people telling them who we are and what we do, and encouraging them to come and join in on the sessions.

Fridays – Colnbrook Village Hall

You are probably aware that the Youth Group secured funding until March for bi-weekly meetings on a Friday evening from 6.30 until 9.00 in the CVH. This has proved very successful and hopefully funding will be found to continue beyond March when the current funding expires.

These evenings entail the showing of a DVD, and after the film the group have a little discussion about the film and subjects arising from the film.

Details of any of the sessions mentioned above can be obtained from the youth team (details above).
