Krunch South West’s youth clubs are returning to Turnberries Community Centre in Thornbury following the summer break.

There are two clubs a week during term time, supported by Thornbury Town Council: Wednesday for school years 6, 7 and 8; and Thursdays for school years 9, 10 and 11. Both take place from 6.30-8pm and admission is £1.

There are a range of activities available includes sports, video games, crafts and cooking, as well as trips out and activities during school holidays.

Young people are also welcome just to come along, chill and chat with their friends.

Project manager Penny Baker said: "We’re excited about opening up again for this new term and our fantastic team of experienced youth workers are have planned some fun and engaging activities for this age group.

"All young people are welcome, and the clubs provide a safe space for young people to hang out in a supportive and accessible environment.’

This month Krunch supported World Mental Health Day by taking part in Young Minds Hello Yellow campaign.

Penny added: "We asked all the young people to come along to club wearing something yellow and we donated all the subs from that week to Young Minds.

"Young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing is something we feel passionately about as we are seeing more and more local young people struggling with anxiety and stress because of the pandemic.

"Our youth clubs offer a great place for young people to find support with their mental health and we run many activities to promote positive physical and emotional wellbeing. Our youth workers are always available for a chat and a listening ear."

All young people are welcome at youth clubs. No need to book, just come along. You can find more information, and a registration form at

Krunch South West will also be running some activities during the October school holidays; watch their social media for more information.
