As a committee we always wanted someone to focus on the youth side of the club and with us being given money to focus on bringing in a youth contingent we have decided to bring in Richard Preston as the clubs youth officer. Richard has spent his career working in schools with children and is looking forward to getting stuck into the role.
He will take the £160 award and use it to get prepared for a small group of teenagers to start after Christmas, also looking at the legal requirements as well. Initially this will be playing D&D but they may move onto other games as they see them playing. The idea is to teach them to run their own games and become valued members of the club.
We all feel that it’s important to help bring new people into our tabletop hobby and look forward to what the new young members bring to the club.
