WEEKLY CLUBS

ONLINE Youth Club (Mondays)

In the time before Covid (remember that?!) we were running a really popular Youth Club, supported by Youth Scotland Generation Cashback, which started in January 2020. Unfortunately we are not currently able to run this in person, but we are pleased to announce the show will go on…albeit online via Zoom!

The online club is running from 7-9pm every Monday night and is free to attend. Young people (of secondary school age) must be registered with Achievement Bute to take part. If you aren’t already registered, please download a Registration Form here!

LOCKDOWN & SUMMER 2020

Why not take a peak back at what we got up to during one of the most truly bizarre summers most of us will ever experience!? From Baking to Den Building, Breaking News to Heritage Hunting…we certainly made the most of our time and would like to pass on a huge thank you to all who took part! Relieve the summer here!
