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!

Betterdays Saturday Play Club & the Young Women’s Project to close

Unfortunately as a result of a funding cut two of our popular projects will be ending. This has not been an easy to decision to make at a time when many young people and families are facing cuts to services, however due to changes in the way Bristol City Council funds youth services we are no longer in a position to continue these projects. The table tennis and football sessions provided by Full Circle at St Pauls Academy are unaffected.

Youth services in this area previously funded by Bristol City Council have now been commissioned out to Learning Partnership West. ffi contact Learning Partnership West here:

Full Circle will continue to work with the Malcolm X Centre in providing young people’s play and activities at the Jamafrique night, Thursdays 6.30 – 9.30pm. We will be announcing details of an exciting new project we are planning for this years St Pauls Carnival…watch this space!

In the meantime we would like to thank Dee, Rhia, Lucie, Isoke and Angela for working with us over the years and good luck in the future.
