The Laguna Youth Club held a fun-packed barbeque on the eve of National Day. The members themselves came up with the idea of hosting this end-of-summer event in which young people could develop a number of skills, such as cooking and arts & crafts, whilst preparing and running the barbeque.
The Dolphins Youth Club was busy over the summer months with various, well-attended, local activities. Young persons actively involved in club events throughout the year saw their hard work and dedication rewarded in the form of various fun events and trips.
One of these events was the Dolphin Youth Club’s annual BBQ, which was held in July. This year, the Dolphin Youth Club invited young people from the Youth Centre, providing a chance for the members of the different clubs to socialise with each other in a relaxed atmosphere. The invitation was reciprocated a few weeks later at the Youth Centre’s annual BBQ.
