Volunteer opportunity in Tilehurst

Published: 08 March 2023

Over the past year, Berkshire Youth has worked with Tilehurst Parish Council to provide more activities for young people in the parish.

As a result, there are now regular term-time activities including a youth club at Calcot and Kicks sessions (football activities) at the Cotswold Sports Centre, both on Thursdays.

During the 2022 school summer holiday, Sports in the Park sessions were started – these proved very popular and, this year, they will be held during the Easter holiday and May half-term as well. The Easter sessions will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays at all four parish recreation grounds – Cotswold, Cornwell, Turnhams Farm, and Calcot.

More volunteers are now needed to help run all the activities.

Current opportunities:

  • Term time – 6.00pm to 9.00pm on Thursdays
  • Easter holiday and May half term – 12.45pm to 6.45pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays
  • Summer holiday – 12.45pm to 6.45pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays

This is an exciting and rewarding opportunity for those who have time to give in support of the young people in the community
