Holmes Chapel Youth Council
Holmes Chapel established its first Youth Council in February 2019 to help young people become involved with village life. The first Youth Council of 11 members was an exciting step for Holmes Chapel.
In the subsequent two years, the Youth Council achieved and arranged many actions including holding regular meetings, running a poster competition to raise awareness of environmental issues, conducting a survey on providing a Youth shelter in Holmes Chapel and also launched the Holmes Chapel Youth Cinema! The cinema was well received with some sell out screenings attracting lots of children from the village. In all these activities the enthusiasm and maturity of the members shone through and impressed the Parish Council, who were proud to support our Youth Council.
Sadly, the pandemic halted the Youth Council for 18 months. However, further to holding our second Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 19 October 2021, we are delighted that the Youth Council has continued since then.
The youth Council for 2023 has been re-elected as of January 2023 - there are now 15 members of the Youth Council, with more welcome to join throughout the year.
Their enthusiasm to get activities and projects off the ground bodes well for the Youth of Holmes Chapel in coming months!

Youth Council Meetings
The Youth Council have recommenced holding regular meetings, now on Mondays at 3:30pm, in TR1 Training Room at the Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School. Meetings will be held approximately once every 5 - 6 weeks. See details of next meeting at the top of this page.
The Youth Cinema, organised by the Youth Council, is showing films again - the latest film was on Friday July 14th - Spiderman - and was enjoyed by all who came to see it. Films will be shown at Holmes Chapel Community Centre, either on a Friday evening or a Saturday afternoon. Drinks and snacks to enjoy during the film are available to purchase at the community centre.
We need more people to come along to see the films if the Youth Cinema is to continue.
The next film will be advertised on this website when details are available.
