Youth Club Open


The Youth club is finally open and has been doing a brisk trade since the middle of May, with an official open evening on Monday 29th June. Many of our funders and helpers were there with family and despite the sweltering heat, everyone was impressed, and took advantage of the gorgeous buffet generously provided by Harrisons restaurant of Main Road.
Chairman Tony McKenna made a speech thanking all of those who had worked so hard, over the years, and the Ark 11 charity for their work, and of course those who donated cash, and the Essex Environment Trust, Essex Community Initiative Fund, and Hockley Parish Council who all sent representatives on the night. An Appeal was made for further funding towards air conditioning for one and floorcovering for another, but also for anyone who would volunteer to supervise one night a week or even just one night a fortnight, as we are only open open at present two nights a week.
Anyone who could not make it on the open evening is welcome to come along either Friday or Tues evenings to have a look and see what we have achieved.
