Christ the King Church Youth Club
In the 1950s and early 1960s, Patcham had a thriving youth club attached to Christ the King Church and run by the late Les Harris, Kathy Adames and Mr Parker. Over the years there had been several reunions, but when Christ the King was decommissioned, the reunion organisers decided there would be no more. But some people had other ideas, and many wanted to stay in touch, and so the Patcham Youthless Club was formed.
Lots of activities
We have an annual skittles tournament, in memory of late member Mick Paine, a barbecue, a couple of hikes (or totters due to age) for those still fit enough (those that can’t manage the walk meet for a picnic at the end). For the last two years we have enjoyed the Chichester Ship Canal Cruise, one of our members John ‘Sam’ Bassett, even comes over from Barbados to take part.
We have lots of social events
We also try and meet up for meals occasionally. There is also an annual rock climbing challenge for the ultra fit amongst us. Last year Mick and Pauline ‘Teddy’ Harris ran a successful quiz evening for us. In the past we have also had Car Treasure Hunts but in the light of fuel prices today knocked that on the head.
Want to join us?
We are always open to new ideas, suitable for our generation; we may be in our 60s and 70s but are still young at heart. Did you go to Christ the King Youth Club? Would you like to join us?
