Round the Bend 2017

Tyne Valley Parish Church Holiday Club was a great success again this year. The kids enjoyed going 'Round the Bend' with Stan, Harry, and Mrs McBossy. Each morning there was a fun packed, high energy programme of games, crafts, songs, keep fit and drama. In the McCracker family soap, Susie tried to get the attention of wacky skateboarding Gran, DIY fanatic Mum, and Dad practising for the 'bake off'. All the problems were solved at the end of the week, and Susie managed to get on to the boys football team and was invited to Lizzy McCools party. Ratty appeared from his shed each day to talk to Stan and Harry, and explained what the bible drama's meant to our daily lives. Stan and Harry didn't have any cars to stick their parking tickets on, so they gave them to the kids and leaders who had to do messy challenges. It all sounds crazy doesn't it! and it was.

 

 

 

 Holiday Club 2016

Sniffer and Co, the Tyne Valley Parish Church Annual Holiday Club, was a great success again this year. Super Spy (Louise Spencer) led the young trainee spies (the children) as they helped Sniffer (Alan Cobain)  and Bungler (Robert Simpson) try to solve "the Case of the man called Jesus". Along the way the trainee spies had great fun with crafts, games, songs, challenges, and stories. The week ended with a sunny BBQ and Sunday Celebration.

The Holiday Club can't operate without a large team of volunteers who lead the teams, do the drama's, work in the background, paint, create the stage set, provide the food, and many other tasks. We also had some great youngsters helping this year, so THANK YOU ALL.


 

 

              Holiday Club 2015 - Clowning Around


About 50 children each day were kept busy with games, messy challenges, drama's, quizzes, and singing. They enjoyed the fun of the circus with Clown's Fred (Alan Cobain) Joey (Robert Simpson) and the Ringmaster (Louise Spenser), and a great team of leaders. The Clown's tricks kept going wrong and custard pies and eggs added to the fun. One day the teams constructed cars to cheer the clowns up, and with the building of a strong man's towers the children reached for the stars. There was a daily drama with Jack and Sally in the 'Monster Puppet show', in 'Behind the Scenes' we saw what had been happening in the daily soap opera about the circus, as nasty Nigel tried to take over the circus, but was foiled by Winnie and the others. It was all brought together with the bible drama.

The week finished with a BBQ, games and Zumba in Callander Park and a Celebration in the Village Hall on the Sunday where everyone was able to see photo's and parts from the weeks fun.
