Background

A Brighter Future — for Druids Heath.

We moved on to the Druids Heath estate in 2001, and at that time there were no youth clubs or community events on the estate for children.
We decided, along with our friends to hire the hall for a couple of hours on a Wednesday evening to provide somewhere safe for them to play. For the first week there where 12 children and they had a great time, so we decided to hire the hall for the following week. We had a total shock as 43 children turned up, which encouraged us as our children had told their friends what they had done the week before and invited them along. We were astonished and didn’t know what to do with them. Fortunately, one of our friends was a teacher, and his skills indeed came in handy. That was the beginning of The Spearhead Youth project
