Community Organisations Full Circle & Aspiration Creation Elevation (ACE) CIC secure management of Docklands Youth Club / St Pauls Settlement.

St Pauls Community Organisations Full Circle and ACE CIC are delighted to announce their success in securing a 15 year lease from Bristol City Council as the new managers of Docklands Youth Centre / St Paul’s Settlement .

Following Bristol City Council’s announcement in 2013 to offer a management lease for the Docklands Youth Club as part of a Community Asset Transfer process, a consultation to assess the needs and wishes of children and young people locally was led by Full Circle and ACE. Young people and local resident users of the building and its services expressed an overwhelmingly majority interest for Full Circle and ACE to secure management and continue delivery of existing services and youth activities.

Full Circle charity have been running family support and activities in St Pauls since 1980 and together with ACE formed in 2013 by Darren Lynch-Burton, Hans Soghe and Cherelle Grant have been successfully running existing youth activities and community groups at Docklands for the past year. Currently over 100 local young people per week visit the Docklands Youth site to attend music production, sports activities, employability sessions, homework clubs, summer clubs and mentoring sessions. The centre is also home to women’s groups offering basketball and community support.

Docklands Settlement was set up in Bristol in 1924 by Sir Reginald Kennedy Cox. The first centres were set up in London, to serve the youth of the dockers in slum areas offering refuge, cultural activities and sports. Throughout the later years Docklands Youth Club/St Pauls Settlement continued to offer arts and music activities producing and influencing many Bristol’s music talents.

Situated in Brigstocke Road St Pauls, the centre is situated in one of the most overall deprived neighbourhoods of Bristol and is the only one of its kind in the area. With this in mind our shared vision is to build on our work with young people and to develop new creative arts & media, sports, educational and training programmes.

Full Circle and ACE CIC trustees and Directors would like to thank all the individuals and organisations that have supported this process especially the young people who attend the youth projects, our staff and volunteers, Patsy Newton & The Ethical Property Foundation, Elaine Flint & Social Enterprise Works, Caroline Oldland, Knightstone Housing, Rethink, Ujima Radio, St Paul’s Unlimited, Cllrs Gus Hoyt & Rob Telford, Bristol City Council, Unite the Union, Voscur and most importantly the community of St Pauls, Bristol.

I repeat : We are the Easton Community Tournament Champions!!

Last Saturday 24th of May 2014, the Easton Community Tournament took place with much enthusiasm at The City Academy on Russell Town Avenue.

The Easton Community Cup is an annual event, now in its 3rd year and this year’s event was the biggest yet, with 16 different teams taking part and over 100 young people involved.

Young football enthusiasts from across Redfield, Easton and St Pauls took part and after 4 competitive rounds, Docklands eventually won the final beating Lebeqs FC 4-2.

Despite the horrible weather, the football competition went really well and lasted the whole afternoon from 12pm until about 5pm.

Full Circle helped train beforehand 3 teams and managed them to enter into the competition.

See more pictures of last Saturday here.

Congratulations and well done again to everyone involved and the dedication you put in!
