Each year we run a Holiday Club for boys and girls aged 4½ to 11, usually each morning during the first week of August from Monday to Friday. We provide 70- 80 youngsters with a range of exciting activities – craft, games, and songs, together with bible stories. No charge is made for attendance at the club, but donations towards costs are always welcome.
None of this is achievable without a large team of helpers to organise the games, tell the stories, prepare craft activities, and help the children with these – as well as more mundane “admin” tasks – last year over 40 adults (young and old) were involved.
Volunteers are always welcome, and should you feel able to offer some help please contact Helen McAlpine on email@example.com - we would be delighted to hear from you.

What Do People Think About Holiday Club?
“Thank you to everyone that helped out to make it a wonderful experience for both my kids. These kinds of events really do help make Croxley a wonderful place to live!”
“He had a wonderful time. So lovely to see him so happy and enthusiastic about what he had done when I picked him up. Great idea to do a fun/food/ and to see what they've been up to on the Friday. It's a great way for the children to be with their friends and meet new ones.”
“My daughter loved her few days at the holiday club and has asked me if she can go again next year. I think this was the highlight of her summer hols.”
Holiday Club 2016
In 2016 the theme (not surprisingly) was The Olympics, under the title of “On Your Marks”. Activities included a blindfold obstacle race, reflecting the Paralympics; making boats; and appropriate bible based stories such as Jesus calling his disciples (team building).
