Launch of computer ‘Code Club’

FREE taster session at Congresbury Youth Club  between 4.30pm and 6pm on Monday 1st October. 

Aimed for children aged between 8years – 12 years old.

Young people and parents can come and find out what it’s all about, and register to join us.   Subsequent sessions will  be scheduled every Monday of term time,  at times from 3.30 until about 6.30, depending on demand.  They will  cost  £1.50 per session, and initially equipment will be available to borrow.  Keen new programmers may eventually need to buy themselves some equipment, perhaps a  Raspberry  Pi of their own to work on at home, but no need to do so immediately.  Our tutors will advise you. What is a Raspberry Pi?   It’s a tiny computer, cheap enough that young people can experiment with programming it themselves, and through our project can develop coding skills to produce simple games, control models and much more. We can also help you with the programming language Python, which you may need for your IT homework.

If you are a young person interested in joining this group, come along on Oct 1st, or contact cidercot.alex@gmail.com

Check out:  https://www.codeclub.org.uk.  Our club may not be exactly like this, but it gives you an idea.

If you are an adult with any time to help, please let us know.  Skills are not essential.    We need tea-makers as well as computer programmers, though a  knowledge of both would be perfect, of course.

Volunteers needed by police

Avon & Somerset Police have set up a new support group and are looking for volunteers.     

As a Volunteer in a Circle of Support and Accountability (‘Circle’), you’ll make an important contribution to preventing sexual abuse by helping reduce the risk of further sexual harm by a known perpetrator.

A Circle is a small group of carefully trained and selected Volunteers who meet regularly with an individual who has been convicted of sexual offences (or with harmful sexual behaviour). Volunteers hold the individual to account for their behaviour and support their safe reintegration into the community. They work closely with the responsible statutory organisations.   Read more

Congresbury Scouts appeal for warm/waterproof clothing

Congresbury Scouts love to be outdoors and do a lot of hiking and camping. Scouts grow very fast, and for some families, it’s a real struggle to keep them in suitable warm clothing and footwear for activities. Leaders have had a number of occasions when young people have not been able to enjoy their outdoor activities just because they have been too cold and wet. We have decided to address this by setting up a kit exchange within the group, so that outdoor gear can be passed down to those who don’t have enough of their own.

To get this ball rolling, we need to assemble a reasonable stock of various sizes that are available for exchange. We are looking for waterproof jackets, trousers, gloves and gaiters especially, and for walking boots in various sizes.

If anyone has that sort of stuff hanging around outgrown or unloved, we would love to hear from you.
