Christmas at SRYP
The last day of working before Christmas for the SRYP office will be Friday, 20th December. The office will then be closed, reopening at our normal time on Thursday, 2nd January 2014.
Can we take this opportunity to wish all our young people and colleagues in Youth Work a safe and relaxing Christmas break, ready to face the challenges which are sure to face us in 2014.
This has been an eventful year, we had many successes in our Charity of the Year Award, the South West Participation Conference, our development of work with Healthwatch Somerset and the many successful residential sessions as part of NCS and REAL Futures. We are saying goodbye to some important people in our organisation who have been with us for many years through the good time and the bad.
We look forward to seeing many of you back here in the New Year, ready to tackle new and exciting projects.
We've been on the radio
Sarah Baggaley, our Marketing Officer and Ewan Black, our Project worker for Moped Loans took part in "We can work it out", a fun workplace competition on the Laura Rawlings programme on BBC Radio Bristol.
Its a boys versus girls thing and contestants get to answer questions about their workplace so it was another opportunity for us to raise the profile of the organisation.

At a glamorous evening event held at the Huish Park home of Yeovil Town Football Club, SRYP again celebrated the success and achievements of young people who have worked with us over the past year.
