Third CYAG Activity Announced

WITH the Wednesday, 5 p.m. Football sessions with Burnley FC in the Community going from strength to strength, at the King George V Playing Field MUGA on Skipton Road, the CYAG management team has announced two further outdoor, hour long activity sessions.

Also every Wednesday, from 5th May, at 5 p.m. during the growing season, the Open Gate team is putting on horticulture sessions from its community garden off Castle Road, right at the top of the King George V Playing Fields.  Unlike the football sessions, where players merely need to turn up on time to join in, CYAG is asking that those wanting to attend and learn how to grow their own vegetables, register and join CYAG first.  These sessions, like all CYAG activities so far, are free.  Young people will learn all the skills of propagation and horticultural cultivation.  They will receive tips in the warm, friendly atmosphere at Open Gate and be able to take seedlings, plants, or produce home with them, so they can use their gardening expertise at home.

From 26th April, Park High School is hosting CYAG Biking Skills every Monday at 5.30 p.m.  Kirsti Grayson of Go Velo explained: “Young People must sign up in advance if they want to access these free sessions.  BMX, Mountain Biking and Bike Maintenance require strict ratios of instructors to young people.” CYAG Biking is designed for cycling enthusiasts, of whatever level, and will be taken by qualified instructors.

The CYAG Team will be handing out application forms to join CYAG, at every session, as membership brings many benefits.  Parents can see and complete the membership forms by visiting:  The annual subscription to join CYAG is just £3.

If young people from Colne, Trawden, Foulridge and Laneshaw Bridge want to access the full range of activities CYAG and its partners are offering, initially outdoors, and then indoors, when Covid restrictions are lifted, they must join CYAG.  The CYAG application form requires details of parents and their children for their own safety.  All the data collected will be stored securely and confidentially.
