I am lucky enough to be involved with running a youth group.
To give its proper title its actually a Young Residence Association.
This is based in Bodmin up on the Treningle View and Kinsman estate area.
The kids there are fantastic. Like all kids they have so much energy and we help them put it to good use.
A few months ago they came to us to ask about organising a Pirate Fun Day and we thought it would be a brilliant way to start off the summer holidays from school.
Now, we do help them a lot but this was going to be their day so we spent the last month or so working with them to plan it, undertake the risk assessments, contact the people who they wanted to invite, arrange for the activities and just about everything else and they done fantastic.
We managed to get 27 children and 12 adults to come along and join in. We had cake ! We had pets we had pirates and most of all we had fun.
The only down side to the day was the weather. This we had no control over but managed to still work everything out from the Hub.
We still even managed to walk the plank! Fancy dress was optional and many that came made a great effort. The Housing association and Children`s Center came along and even a surprise visit from the Pets at Home Team who brought in some cute little cuddly critters.
The end of the day was rounded off with a water slide. This was the wet one, the slipperiest, sloppiest slide and what the day was all about. Fun Fun Fun !
