The Bretch Hill Youth Action Team has been up and running for 2 years now. It consists of young people aged 11-20 who live in Banbury.


With a new energy and passion amongst the young people, the Bretch Hill Youth Action team hope to challenge the negative stereotypes that can be affixed to young people by forming positive vibes in their community using creativity as a catalyst.


They began with a 'We Love Bretch Hill' campaign and have now gone on to host a range of community events as well as some exciting kindness missions and volunteer work for local causes. At the same time, they continue to develop creative projects in the wider community to promote the Youth Action Team in Bretch Hill. The YAT's have developed a range of new skills and are working towards their Arts Award (a QCF Qualification in the arts).


Do you have any ideas you'd like to bring to the table or are you keen to make some exciting things happen in Bretch Hill?


You don’t need to be an artist to join in; all you need is enthusiasm and a will to form a positive vibe for young people. If you feel this is for you, email [email protected] or pop in and see us in the The Hill Youth and Community centre on Mondays from 4.30-6pm.
