Kids Club Residential
We were delighted to take 15 children plus two parents on a 36 hour residential. Lots of fun, games and new experiences. Children reviewed their '51 things' books and added new memories as they cooked their evening meal, created a fire and cooked marshmallows, played games in big fields, and challenged their limits in outdoor pursuit activities. We tried archery, low ropes, medium ropes, aerial walkway and 'leap of faith'.
A safe, fun, challenging and memorable residential trip.
ENACT COMMUNITY AWARDS 2017

Training night for our young leaders and youth volunteers. Great participation from such willing and enthusiastic young people who are willing to help others in their community.
Kids Club volunteers worked together to plan a new term of activities. Volunteers refreshed their safeguarding training and we discussed how clubs are managed and run. Great new plans for the new year!
Enact.community celebrate our volunteers with a Christmas Party. Food, games, secret santa and a Christmas Quiz! A massive thank you to all of our volunteers who help us run all of our clubs that benefit the local community.
Launch of the '51 things' project
Kids Club launch a new initiative to encourage children and their families to try new experiences. We've found 51 things that we think every child should do, or attempt to do, before they go to secondary school. Each child receives a '51 things' book and a list to stick on the fridge at home. Mark with a green sticker if you do the 'thing' with your family and mark it with a red sticker if you achieve it at Kids Club.
Thanks to the RSA Trust who have sponsored the design and print.

It's not long until Christmas....time to 'AWAKE'. In partnership with Oasis Hub Enfield, look out for our 'AWAKE' Christmas activities. Christmas is so easily taken over by the wrong stuff, maybe we can enjoy a moment to 'awake' our hearts to the right stuff this year! Love and others! Finding time and using the opportunity to be with family, friends and community.

Congratulations to one of our young people who has recently secured a part-time job, overcoming study stress and building self-confidence to do so. We are celebrating with this young person because they were really worried at the start of term, but have managed to make great progress in their study as well as get a part time job to earn some money while they study.
Great week of community activity. Epping Forest and Tower Bridge for children and parents, Youth Rugby, Youth Cooking and Youth Drop-ins.
