Congratulations to Cleveden Community Club who have recently celebrated their first anniversary.
The Club was started last year to make the facilities of Cleveden Secondary School available to the Kelvindale Community.
Staffed mainly by volunteers and supported by the local Maryhill Kelvin Ward Councillors, the Club has provided access to swimming, football, badminton, basketball, table tennis and the use of the school fitness suite. There is also a book exchange, model making, flower arranging and jewellery making, plus taster sessions in bowls, martial arts, cycling and trying your hand at a musical instrument. You can also relax with old friends and new in the Community Cafe.
Local young people were founder members and have served on the management committee from the start. Several have taken first level courses in coaching football and basketball and have now become volunteer coaches.
This summer the Club has also joined with Kelvindale Bowling and Lawn Tennis Club to refurbish their two tennis courts. Other links between these two organisations are in the pipeline.
Last August the launch of Cleveden Community Club was celebrated with a hugely successful Ceilidh attended by family groups of all ages – and our two community police!
This year’s Ceilidh takes place at Cleveden Secondary School on Saturday 20th at 7pm with entertainment from the Cloud Howe Ceilidh Band.
Prices are £5 for over 16s
Weeks beginning 1st and 8th August 10 -12.
CCC has two venues and will be on Monday Tuesday Thursday Friday for the next two weeks. In the morning there will be coached football, badminton, basketball, racquetball (Tuesday) and the pool will be available. These sports will be at Cleveden Secondary from 10 am to 12 noon. Cost £1 for members (please bring your cards) and £2 for non members. CCC will ask you to fill in contact details etc on Monday, so please be patient. There will be some drinks on offer, but the main cafe will be in the afternoon at Kelvindale Bowling and Tennis Club in Baronald Drive. Come along and join CCC for some tennis (a coach will be on site and they are keen to start a junior section so all ages welcome) and perhaps try some bowling between 2 pm to 4pm. CCC would love to see you there.
