Editor’s Note: Property

So, once the fireworks die down after
5th November, we’ll all start thinking
about Christmas.
With that in mind – here at The
Grapevine Mag we’re already planning
our local Christmas Gift Guide.  How
perfect would it be to do most of your
Christmas shopping locally on your
doorstep.
Shopping locally and independently
usually means quirky gifts, less stress
and sometimes free gift wrapping –
what’s not to like?
Enjoy our November edition and we’ll
see you soon

Love the Grapevine Mag Team

Youth Club Lifestyle & Leisure
Sport, Games, Chat, Food and Fun

Christ Church, the church at the

wasn’t anywhere for young people to
hang out together.  Young people with
specific interests are well catered for in
Hipperholme and Lightcliffe, but there
was nowhere for those who just wanted
to spend time with their friends or meet
new ones….except street corners or The
Stray.  Those places are fine in the long
summer evenings, but not on cold and

place for young people from Year 5 to
Year 13 to meet up.

Centre on Leeds Road next to the Old Church dental
practice.  There is plenty room for the young people
to play sports such as badminton, table tennis,
volleyball and football; play games all together or in
small groups; take part in activities such as cooking
or crafts; or just hang out, chat and listen to music. 
During the summer evenings, Youth Club sometimes
meet on The Stray and play games like rounders or
just swing and climb.  These evenings often end up
with a walk to the chippy! 

Youth Club is run by DBS checked church members
and a Youth Worker who makes sure that the young
people are involved in choosing what to do, and
also make sure they are fed and watered, usually
with pizza! With subs at only £1.50, it’s great value.
