From January 2021 we will be running our Breakfast Club from the centre, we’ll be opening at 07:30am for a healthy nutritious breakfast and some fun and games before the school day.
Breakfast Club is available for children aged 3 – 11 years old and who attend our Pre School Nursery or attend St. Mary and St Thomas Aquinas Primary School. If you’re interested in Breakfast Club but your child attends a different primary school with the local area please contact us as our aim is to be as flexible as possible to meet the needs of families in the area.
Breakfast Club is held in our Social Area at the centre. When they arrive they’ll be greeted by our friendly, qualified and experienced staff who’ll make them a healthy breakfast and offer toys and activities to get their day off to a fun start.
Once children have had a good breakfast and a chance to play and socialise with their friends where they’ll go through to pre-school nursery or board our mini-bus to set off for school.
Breakfast options will include; water, milk or juice to drink.
There is fresh fruit available including; apples, bananas, satsuma’s, melon, strawberries, blueberries etc.

Blaydon Youth and Community Centre became one of our favoured venues during the first lockdown. As a training provider, we could continue to deliver our courses as they are educational and essential. Unfortunately, a lot of the venues we were already using had closed. On the search for more venues, we started contact with Susan Forster (Business Administrator) from Blaydon. She was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. Susan and the staff took great care of our delegates and trainer. The venue was always clean and Covid-19 secure, which was vital as a main concern for our delegates. Our trainers have had nothing but excellent feedback post training here and I cannot thank Susan and the team enough for all their hard work and support.
Due to our excellent experiences and the rapport built, we have decided to continue using this venue in 2021. We would highly recommend.
Thank you for taking good care of us. We really do look forward to working with you in 2021. Massive thank you to Susan for all her support.
We were extremely happy with the booking process; staff could not be more helpful. I wish all venues were as well kept and looked after us as well.
Due to Covid-19, it is very limited to what can be done but it was first rate. Everything I needed was to hand and Sue was on hand if we needed anything else.
The Centre facilities were very clean.
The venue is ideal for what we do, and staff go out of their way to help, the venue has sufficient parking and is very easy to find.
The booking process was easy to do and the staff were always extremely helpful in supporting any of our needs for the rooms we required. The staff were always very welcoming and extremely helpful. Refreshments were available but we did not use these facilities. The Sports Hall is a great space for leading sport sessions.
All the facilities were clean and well maintained. It was great to use a local facility to support our children with their PE lessons.
The children all thoroughly enjoyed their visits to the Sports Hall, and I would highly recommend the Centre for anyone looking to lead sports related activities to children.
