CEDARS TAKES THE WIN AT THE LONDON YOUTH/JACK PETCHEY TABLE TENNIS TOURNMENT 2015

Cedars Youth & Community Centre took two of their members to represent the Centre in the 16 & under London Youth / Jack Petchey 2015 Table Tennis tournament which was held on April 8th at Morpeth School, Bethnal Green, East London.

Nicholas Mileham and Max Aldous both local boys  who also represent their school and the County had to first contend with getting through the group stages of the tournament, each player had to play 4 opponents in their box, neither boys dropped a game putting them straight through with ease into the quarter final stages.

Unfortunately both boys were then drawn in the same half of the draw with the potential of meeting in the semi-finals.

Nicholas and Max were both looking strong and both boys got through their quarters with ease.

Nicholas and Max then went on to met each other in the semi final, this turned out to be a very close match with some exceptional shots and play from both players. News got round of the standard of table tennis in this match which then drew in a large crowd.    This was by far the best match of the tournament even bettering the standard of the 19 & under section.

Mileham came out on top winning the semi taking him through to the final which he then went onto to win.

Well done Nicholas for the win and Max for coming third.

CEDARS RECEIVE LONDON SILVER YOUTH QUALITY MARK AWARD

Another success at Cedars Youth & Community Centre!

The 2nd of March was a big day for the Trust staff at Cedars, both receiving a ministerial visit from Rt Hon Francis Maude MP, Paymaster General and also confirmation that they had achieved the London Youth silver award.

The Silver award builds on the achievements of the Bronze award by looking in more detail at:

• the work of your organisation;

• how the work is delivered;

• what your organisation actually provides; and

• how this improves the personal development of young people.

The Silver level encourages young people to take part in developing and delivering the programmes and introduces them to various management aspects of the centre and the Trust.  London Youth supports a network of over 400 diverse community youth organisations where young people choose to go.

With around 1,000 people visiting the Cedars centre each week, we’re here to support and challenge young people to become the best they can be.

This award follows the extensive work carried out by the Trust’s staff at the centre across a myriad of programmes and activities, whether they are youth club related or sporting activities.   The Trust is always interested in people wishing to volunteer across its programmes and to help with new ideas.  One of the challenges for 2015 is to engage with more teenage females and to set up a youth forum, which will assist in advising the centre’s Management Board.  

The centre periodically allows work placements for young people to gain knowledge of life outside of school, college or university.  However, the students must engage fully to ensure there is a ‘win-win’ experience for both parties. 

Naturally, having gained the silver award, the road towards the gold award begins!

Get involved with the Hornets’ Community Trust for some incredible challenges in 2015

WATFORD FC’s Community Trust is delighted to announce some new, exciting and unique challenges for 2015 - and you can get involved!   

For further details on any of the below, please contact Andrea Viglieno, Business Development & Projects Manager for these events on 01923 496225 or andrea.viglieno@watfordfc.com 

In 2014, 98 people took part in varying challenges, raising in excess of £43,000 of vital funding for the Trust. 

This year, the Trust (a self-financing and registered charity) will take on a 10k run through London's Hyde Park on April 25 for Mercy 4 Mankind, aimed to be a fun and healthy day out in one of London's favourite spots. Registration is completely free, you just need to book your place! 

There's also the trip to France for an amazing bike ride through some beautiful countryside, before reaching the French capital city Paris.

You don’t need to be a professional cyclist to be able to take part, so why not take the chance to experience a unique challenge and visit Paris while raising money for a good cause? This event will take place on June 26-28.

The ever-popular London Nightrider will be back again with some novelties – a shorter route option of 60km, an amended route overall and a new start – Lee Valley VeloPark in the Olympic Park (East London) replacing Alexandra Palace. Riders will set off on Saturday June 6 at 10pm.

Nightrider is a unique 100km moonlit ride past London’s iconic landmarks. You will cycle over Tower Bridge, through Canary Wharf, around the buzzing Piccadilly Circus, see the London Eye lit up and cycle over the crossing on Abbey Road. If you have never tried it, or if you want to beat your personal record, jump on a bike for an unforgettable experience.

The final challenge will be ‘Survival of the Fittest’ – Britain’s longest-established adventure running series with obstacles. You will run for 10km, tackle gritty and engaging obstacle zones throughout the course, pitting your wits against thousands of fellow competitors in a test of stamina, grit, speed and guts. Then you’ll hit a massive beer tent! 

Mud, sweat and beers – sounds like a good day out! This challenge is for men, women, teams and solo contenders, and takes place on Saturday November 21.

Each year Watford FC’s Community Trust partners up with a different local charity, despite being a self-financing charity itself.  Two years ago the Trust raised money for Peace Hospice Care, and last year for Watford Mencap.

The Trust believes it’s important to share experience and expertise in order to support all sections of the community. Therefore the Trust has decided DRUM will be the partner charity for 2015.

DRUM (Disability Recreation Unity Movement) is a local charity which provides day services and support to adults with physical and/or sensory disabilities in South West Hertfordshire. Every penny raised will be split 50/50 between these two outstanding charities for their good causes.
