The latest update from YOU London

The Boys’ Brigade in London has been getting involved with other uniformed youth organisations, providing some amazing opportunities for our young people!

The latest YOU London newsletter can be viewed here and includes photos and information from the following events:

  • King Charles III Coronation
  • London Area Sea Cadets Coronation Review
  • Enfield Big Help Out
  • YOU London Quiz Final

Upcoming dates and events that uniformed youth organisations are invited to, include:

  • 6th July: Baton of Hope
    YOU London organisations will be supporting a ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ activity at Kings Cross
  • 21st August – 27th October: Croydon Stands Tall
    An art trail around Croydon
  • 30th September & 1st October: YOU London Leadership Conference Further information will be provided in early July
  • 7th October: Lod Mayor’s Music Competition
    A great opportunity to showcase the BB’s musical talent
  • 11th November: Lord Mayor’s Show
    This year, spaces will be allocated to groups from the West Midlands or Croydon, prior to being offered more widely

YOU London is also taking an active role in helping to shape and develop the pilot for the Kings Award for Community Service, a new award that is being introduced by King Charles III to recognise the positive contribution young people have within their community – More information about the pilot will be provided when we have it, along with the details of opportunities for young people to be involved with the consultation.

Finally, YOU London have put together an Arts & Culture Bulletin for Lord-Lieutenant of Greater London’s Council on Culture and Heritage.  The aim of this bulletin is to provide information for young people, families and youth groups on free and heavily discounted access to arts and cultural venues in London. They have deliberately kept the information generic, so that it is not time dependent. If you have any comments (good and bad) about the bulletin, or suggestions for future inclusions, please let us know and we will pass the feedback on. It is hoped that this will grow organically with each edition.  Edition two will be released in January and will include a page on art galleries and more classical music offerings.
