RCCB - YOUTH TEAM ACTIVITIES 2021-2022
The Youth Team will aim to re-establish full relationships/contact with schools and young people as Covid 19 restrictions are eased. As many youth activities as possible will be maintained, taking account of Government/ Rotary/ Local Authority/ School rules; the pressure on schools/staff, and the need to safeguard the health of our team members. Discussions will take place with schools after the June 2021 summer half term to confirm the programme/dates.
The Youth team will endeavour to involve as many young people and club members as possible in Youth activities.
