Hi everyone, our names are Charlie & Teri and we work at Hill Park After School Club and the Youth Club.

Our favourite thing to do at home – We’ve been spending our lockdown baking! Our favourite bake so far has been a banana and KitKat cake. As you can imagine – it didn’t last very long! Also Charlie has been practising some Makaton! 

Charlie – My favourite thing about working at Extratime is the range of activities we can engage with the young people over. It’s very stimulating and thoroughly enjoyable! 

Teri– My favourite thing about working at Extratime is the amazing sense of community throughout the workers and the young people. Everyone’s diversity is celebrated and cherished which makes for a really fun time!

Hi everyone, my name is Leah and I am a Play Worker at both Hill Park and Hawkins After School Clubs.

Since I’ve been at home my favourite thing to do lots of art and playing games with my sister and my friend. (Who I live with!)

The thing I love about Extratime is being with the children and young people, seeing them smile, having fun and watching them grow up and change for the better.

Hopefully I’ll see you soon stay safe and take care.

Parent Carer, Easter 2020

We wanted to thank Extratime for all the fun, support and interest that the staff have given him during the holidays and after school. He has loved it and gets excited at the idea of ‘club’.

This Easter holiday will be the last time he will be able to use your super facilities and I know all our family would agree with us in that you have been wonderful!
