St Mary's Island Youth Club

The Island Castaways youth club opened in May 2008 and is affiliated to Kent Youth.

The Club meets at the Community Centre every Friday evening during term time from 7.00 to 9.00 pm and offers cricket, table tennis, pool, karaoke, a craft table and tuck shop. Other activities include discos, theme nights, sports and dancing sessions with professional trainers.

Membership, which costs £2 per evening, is open to Island children from 10-16 years of age and children in Year 6 of St. Mary's Island School. Just come along and see what's on offer. Parental Consent forms are required after the first attendance.

The Club is run by a small number of CRB checked volunteers of all ages and always seeking further volunteers.  If you would like to give something back to the community, please call David Taylor on 893447

There was an attempt to re-open the Youth Club at the beginning of 2016 but due to lack of regular volunteers this was not possible.  The Club is dependent on getting enough regular volunteers who can give one Friday night a month from 6.30 pm to 9.15 pm to add to the existing volunteer list.  With new volunteers and a new Club Leader, Rodney Parr, the Club re-opened on the 16th  September 2016.   Rodney is committed to maintaining the success of the Club for the immediate future and beyond.  The Club is currently enjoying a healthy attendance by about 40-50 members which is most encouraging.  A "Street Dance" evening and a Shoe Box Appeal, through Medway Sunlight Rotary, for "Children in Need" took place in November 2016.  If you would like to try a taster session then you can go along on one of the dates below; you would be most welcome.    

The Club opens on Friday evenings (see below) at the Community Centre between 7 pm and 9 pm mainly in term times.  Volunteers are required to help to set-up equipment and keep a watching brief or they can get involved if they wish. If you can give some time to support the Club please call David Taylor on 01634 893447 or email
