Weekly Tuesday Group

OOTC meets every week in a Town Centre Location between 5:30pm - 7:30pm.

This is a well established group with lots of young people (aged 13-19). Each week holds different activities from card games like Uno to themed parties like Halloween. There are lots of opportunities to get involved in community activities, discussion and projects.

We have a tuck shop each week with crisps, sweets and drinks, which help fund our sessions.
