Name of Organisation: St. Ouen’s Youth Club Committee.

Description of Activities: The St. Ouen’s Youth Club is a registered charity and we are open four evenings a week where we provide a broad range of personal and social development opportunities for young people aged 8 to 21 years of age.
The young people who attend our Youth Club can enjoy the activities on offer, such as football, basketball, skateboarding, table tennis, pool, PS3, Wii, cooking, and art & craft. And we like to arrange entertainment on the festive holidays such as Easter, Halloween and Xmas. We also arrange offsite activities such as bowling, creepy valley, and weekend residentials at Crabbe Activity Centre.

The Youth Club sessions are run by a team of five very experienced Sessional Youth Workers who have all been trained by the Jersey Youth Service, and two young workers who volunteers with us. The Youth Workers work informally with young people in a range of contexts, and are able to provide creative and alternative ways of learning to support the young people’s social and personal development needs, and achieve the key learning objectives of youth work.

During the time from the 1st July 2014 to the 1st July 2015 we opened the youth club for 108 sessions and had approximately 1,220 visits, which on average was 35 visits per week from young people.

Volunteer Position: Youth Club Committee Treasurer.
Brief description of duties:
• Keeping an overview of the finances of the organisation.
• Reporting into committee meetings.
• Making sure the organisation has the right financial policies and procedures in place.

The St. Ouen’s Youth Club Committee currently consists of a Chairperson, a Secretary and two members. We meet every 4 – 6 weeks for a couple of hours at St. Ouen’s Youth & Community Centre and a key part of the Treasurer's role involves reporting to the committee on the youth club finances. The Treasurer has a specific role within the committee in relation to money matters but the overall responsibility for financial management lies with the whole committee. The organisation is a registered charity so therefore we have to comply with specific financial regulations.
Good management of finances is vital to the smooth running of the organisation.

Continued Restoration at Plémont - Tree Planting

It’s a year since the demolition of the former holiday camp began and Plémont Headland has transformed from a dilapidated eyesore to a green open space. The next stage of the site’s transformation is to plant a range of trees.

The tree planting will start on Thursday 3rd December with Les Landes year 5 group who will be helping the National Trust Lands team start the huge task from 10am (providing the weather isn’t too bad) of planting the shrubs and trees from Lees and Co from Lymington, Hampshire.

The plant order consists of tree species such as Scots Pine and Field Maple as well as many low lying shrubs including Broom, Gorse, Elder, Hawthorn and Blackthorn.

The choice of species and the reason why standard trees are not being used is due to the habitat at Plémont, which is extremely exposed, windy and very cold during the winter months. The site is therefore much more suited to shorter species like hawthorn and Blackthorn which, while still taking time to establish, will form dense thickets and hedges which provide food, in the form of berries, shelter from the harsh conditions and even nesting opportunities for birds and other animal species.

The planting scheme was devised by Michael Felton (Landscape designer) and has been designed to help establish natural heathland and maritime grassland communities by forming sheltered niches particularly by plants like Gorse and broom which are already found in the existing vegetation in and around the site whilst maintaining the open character of the headlands.

Jon Parkes, the Trusts Lands Manager says: “The idea behind the planting scheme is not to create a semi natural garden, but apply a minimalistic approach which will facilitate the restoration of the site into an open grassland or heathland like it once was. This will also provide cover, food and network corridors in the short term for wildlife such as the Toads, Green Lizards, Slow worms, small mammals and many birds which are already moving onto the site.

The order consists of around 1900 trees and shrubs which must be planted in winter whilst they are in their dormant stage.

The remaining plants will be planted with help from the Jersey Conservation Volunteers, the “Back to Work” scheme and The National Trust for Jersey Rangers.
