On the first Tuesday of every month, we meet in the ground floor main hall of Normandy Village Hall between 6:30pm and 8:30pm, where we have a drop-in facility including table-tennis, table-football, snooker, indoor football and where there is a huge projector wired up to our filmmaker player. We hold an art section with all kinds of art materials for young people (aged 8 to 18) to express themselves creatively.



We also are lucky to have our own resident DJ who provides the added atmosphere on our disco nights.

Our members and youth club supervisors alike, are encouraged to participate in accredited schemes and programmes including the Duke of Edinburgh Youth Awards. 

 

In the summer months, our young people are able to enjoy the safe and open space of the grounds of Normandy Village Hall, where badminton, tennis and football can be played. We also hold regular competitions, cake and pizza cooking sessions and have the use of the mobile Demo Pod multi-media facility that run music and film workshops on demand. 

 

'Walk a Mile in my Shoes' youth club initiative



As further reinforcement of the aims and objectives of The N Factor, all members have the right to enjoy the facilities of our culturally sensitive youth club. Therefore we are adopting the Equality & Human Rights Commission (EHRC) 'Walk a mile in my shoes' initiative by explaining the principles of the 'Right to Dignity and Respect' and this we do through encouraging our members to create their own interpretation of the principles and express themselves through art, film and photography. 



Summer Art Competition

Taking on the principles of the 'Right to Dignity and Respect', the theme of our Summer Arts competition will be called ' Walk a mile in my shoes'. The results of which, will be displayed in the main hall of the Village Hall during the Normandy Parish summer fete. This will coincide with the main parish photographic competition that runs yearly on the 'Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in our Parish'. 

 

Film and Photographic Exhibition

We are looking to develop an on-going film and photographic exhibition themed under the 'Walk a mile in my shoes' within the youth club. This is to be encouraged through photographic workshops, to take sequence photographs that describe a 'day in their lives', that can be used as a tool to help members understand other 'walks of life'.
