The Genesis of CYAG

Covid 19 changed everything it seems. Residents and the Police reported an unprecedented rise in anti-social behaviour, not just in Colne, but in Trawden, Laneshaw Bridge and Foulridge too. Planters were turned over. Trees were uprooted. Play equipment was damaged. But why? Margaret Foxley and Sarah Cockburn-Price set out to find out. After speaking to Police, schools, businesses and councils they realised that something had to be done to create societal change locally, as the generations were in conflict. They also realised it couldn’t be a short-term fix. From this, CYAG was born. It was soon clear that lots of other people agreed with us and we are indebted to them for their support.


Football Training at Colne Youth Action Group

To advance in life and help young people living in Colne and the surrounding areas through:

  • The provision of recreational and leisure time activities in the interest of social welfare, designed to improve their conditions of life.
  • Providing support and activities which develop their skills, capacities and capabilities to enable them to participate in society as mature and responsible individuals.
  • Discouraging anti-social and criminal behaviour by showing young people the consequences and likely outcomes of such activities.

Tomorrow at 5 pm is our Horticulture Getting to Know You Session.

It’ll last about half an hour. Young people will get a tour of the Open Gate Community Garden, off Castle Road (at the very top of the King George V Playing Field on Skipton Road.

They will also get to meet the friendly, knowledgable team. The point of this session is to understand what young people want to grow, so we can prepare for next Wednesday, when the growing will begin in earnest!

To enjoy this free CYAG activity, you need to join us: - the incredible value annual subscription is just £3!

These are some of the doughty crew who pitched up at Biking at Park High. However, owing to the gusting of the wind, the Go Velo coaches said it would not have been safe, so home we came! Here’s to it being better weather next Monday at 5.30 pm! 🚴🏻‍♂️🚴🏻‍♀️🚴🏻‍♂️🚴🏻‍♀️🚴🏻‍♂️🚴🏻‍♀️🚴🏻‍♂️🚴🏻‍♀️🚴🏻‍♂️🚴🏻‍♀️🌞☀️🌤

We have just two spaces left for our Biking Sessions at Park High School this Monday (3rd) at 5.30 pm!

Stacey Faulkner’s son joined CYAG and had a ball at biking with Go Velo last week. The professional coaches guided the young people through a series of skills based exercises to build ability to help them reach their goals.

The sessions last one hour and you might want to bring a drink. To take part for free, you must join CYAG: and the annual subscription is £3.

I cannot say I was really disappointed that the @govelobike coaches said it was too gusty for the @ColneYAG Biking to go ahead @park_high_colne this evening. Now settled by the fireside with a cup of tea. 😁 ColneYAG photo
