Blaydon Youth Club has moved to a new building where the Blaydon Swimming Pool was located on Shibdon Road and has been renamed Blaydon Youth and Community Centre. We also have our Facebook Page.
The centre has excellent facilities: a large sports hall, social area with TV, pool table and air hockey, providing adequate seating, there is a well-equipped kitchen, two multi-purpose rooms, used for training and meetings. There is a large playroom and outdoor play area, which is used on a daily basis by our Pre-School and After School Club. A management committee runs the centre from the local community and representatives of Gateshead council and a Centre Manager. Blaydon Youth and Community Centre has opportunities for young people aged from 8 yrs plus, please look at our Youth Club page for further information. Through Gateshead Council, we have adult learning classes, for people to learn a new language, a new skill or develop further knowledge. Classes include Guitar, Italian, German, craft making, yoga and a counseling course.
