Thought for the Month

Dear Friends,

Can I invite you to join me as a fly on the wall in the Kings

Room in the Towers on any Thursday evening during term


In the upstairs room there is a happy buzz of chatter as four

girls enthusiastically enjoy a game of table tennis on the table

in the middle of the room, and another group sit on the bean

bags nearby exchanging important news and generally

chatting. At one end of the room some boys are hunched in

concentration over a football match on the play station, and

at the other end a game of Connect 4 is coming to a noisy


Downstairs there is cool lighting and music in the Refectory

where a crowd gather round the tuck shop which is doing its

usual steady trade and as ever there are young folk hanging

round the kitchen bar chatting with Charlotte and Carole, en-

joying one of Carole’s delicious milk shakes, or perhaps cook-

ing (and eating!) pizzas or pancakes.

Outside a group of hardy footballers are engaged in a com-

petitive game under the watchful eyes of Tom, Sam and Matt

while periodically popping inside for refreshment from the

tuck shop or kitchen bar.

As it’s summer other activities may also be happening. Per-

haps a treasure hunt in the grounds of the Towers or a game

of rounders. At 8pm, or later if they can swing it, the young

people leave saying ‘see you next week…’

Welcome to youth@thetowers - the Buckden youth club for

years 7,8,9.

We are coming to the end of our first year and would like to

express our thanks for the great support we have had from

the village, in particular the Parish Council and The Towers,

for this activity which seems to be appreciated by all the

young people who come.

We will be running until the beginning of July when we close

for the summer, but will be restarting again in mid September

for what we hope will be another successful year.

Best wishes,


Rev Jes Salt

Priest in Charge, Buck-

den and the Offords
