Silkmore Partnership for Youth
Silkmore Partnership for Youth (SPY) had origionally been formed by a partnership between the Rickerscote Tenants & Residents Association, Neighbourhood Police Officers, Silkmore Family & Community Centre, Silkmore Primary School and St Peters Church, Rickerscote. It has been running for nearly 6 years and is currently run by the Penkside Community Champions.
We meet on a Wednesday evening between 6pm and 8pm and cater for ages ranging from 7yrs to 17 yrs. A range of activities are on offer, sport, games, indoor and outdoor or just somewhere to chill out listening to music.
We intend to run Creative Arts Workshops with the assistance of the Creative Arts North Staffs (CANS) team on Wednesday 13th and Wednesday 20th April 2011, between 1pm and 5pm both days. For the project we will be creating scenic mural on two steel containers in the grounds of Silkmore Primary School, Exeter Street, Stafford.
Music project gives an opportunity to experience playing musical instruments and composing your own songs.
Thanks to a grant from the Community Learning Partnership we were able to purchase musical instruments for our youth to experiment with and over a period of several weeks they gained new skills and composed their own songs.
Donation from PASS
Thanks to the kind donation from PASS (Partners Assuring a Safer Staffordshire) we are able to commence our Creative Arts Project.
Spread over two days we are hoping to complete the project by painting Murals on two steel containers in the grounds of Sikmore Primary School.
