Happy New Year

We would like to thank all of our volunteers, staff and supporters

We are so proud of all they achieved giving us much optimism for 2021

Despite the many challenges presented by the pandemic, we managed to keep the lives of many people rich and active this summer.

As we go into 2021, Under the Lockdown we shall be supporting families and working in the community.  We will be lending equipment and working with young people online.  

As soon as conditions allow we shall continue to run Amesbury Youth Cafe, The Element Cafe and Salisbury Community Circus within the NYA Guidelines for Tier 3  Amber Alert for Under 18s.  This will be outdoors to begin with, using the grounds of The Bowman Centre, and Hampton Park Pavillion.

We are still supporting carers of children who need some additional support by loaning out activity equipment to families who need it.

During 2020 we worked supporting families and vulnerable young people during two lockdowns. 

Between the lockdowns we were able to deliver high quality positive activities in Amesbury and Salisbury.

We were able to facilitate 2 family camps, providing safe activities to families camping in their own bubbles on exclusive sites.

The creativity, resilience and dedication shown by

our young people, volunteers, staff and parents has made us extremely proud.

We finished the year on a high providing socially distanced entertainment and some true Christmas spirit .




A group of our fantastic volunteers were recognised for their dedication and commitment, at an official ceremony marking the Amesbury Area Board’s Volunteers of the Year Awards. At a packed Antrobus House, awards were made to individuals and groups in a variety of categories.

Dave Roberts, Wiltshire Council’s Community Engagement Manager for Amesbury, was full of admiration for all the nominees; “ I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who attended, all those who nominated volunteers and supported on the night, but most of all the volunteers who work tirelessly throughout the community area. Without valuable volunteers, many of the projects that take place would fail. “

Cllr Darren Henry added: “This was a great opportunity to recognise and celebrate the warmth and generosity of our Amesbury area communities. It is always the people who bring communities together and I was delighted to be a part of this special evening.”

Pictured after receiving their certificates from Amesbury’s Invictus Games athlete Cornelia Oosthuizen  are our own Iris, Kim, Leigh, Tiphanie and Collette, who was presented with a ‘Highly Commended’ award in the Under 18s category. Congratulations to our brilliant volunteers, and all the other winners on the night.   

Buzz Action Foundation was delighted to produce and contribute the goodie bags which were given to all the nominees, and we would like to thank the following Amesbury businesses for their kind contributions;

Tesco, Zaina’s Hairdressing, Miles of Value, Amesbury Post Office and B&M.

Congratulations to our fantastic volunteers Iris, Kim, Leigh and Tiphanie!
