Words from our Seniors
Millie

I have enjoyed the girls group becuase we have learned about sexual health and the changes to the human body as a group. I like how close the group have become and we now feel comfortable talking to each other about things we may be worried about.

Zak

I like playing football at the club. It was good as after lockdown we were able to increase our fitness and build our teamwork skills across the various age groups

Adam

I enjoy taking part in cycling with the club as we are able to explore Glasgow. I have learned about road safety whilst having fun with my friends.
