Exciting new prospects for Chartham Youth Club

In an effort to breathe new life into Chartham’s Youth Club, a new committee has been formed and we are excited for what 2022 will bring.


CommunityAd caught up with Youth Leader, Bea Berger, to find out a little bit more about the new committee and how they will be working with the community moving forward.


Bea, a mum to three teenage boys, has worked in youth and early years sectors for over 25 years and is determined to use her qualifications and experiences for the better of her hometown; Chartham.


Speaking to us at CommunityAd Bea explains: “My role within Chartham Youth Club is Youth Leader, it’s a new role as we have recently opened our club following the pandemic. We have a new committee, new ideas and a great support network from our parents and local businesses.

“We are bursting with fresh and exciting ideas. We hosted a Christmas party and a bunch of other events and themed nights that saw us into the New Year. Slumber parties, mocktails and movie nights to name a few.

“Having a community youth club is vital for our village and beyond, having a fun and safe environment for children to meet up, gain social skills and enjoy being together is great and incredibly important.”


The youth club is open to all 9 to 18-year-olds and it’s not just children who can make use of the youth club, the community can support by donating time to volunteer, or financial support to help the youth club provide food and entertainment.


The committee always welcome volunteers (once DBS cleared), donations of snacks and craft items are much needed too.


Bea finished by adding: “We meet weekly at Chartham Village Hall, every Wednesday 6-7.30pm. If you know a young person that would like to come along please check out our Facebook group Chartham Youth Club or contact [email protected] for more information.”
