We do this by making it inexpensive, by using special boats and equipment and by our approach: “You want to sail – let’s work out how you can do it safely!” We are based at the Rickmansworth Aquadrome.
Youth Connexions provides youth work, information, advice, guidance, work related learning, outdoor education and support for young people. The majority of its work is with those aged 13 to 19 and up to 25 for young people with learning disabilities. It also provides support for young people leaving care, up to the age of 21, through the Youth Connexions One Stop Shops and work related learning in Primary Schools.
Home-Start Watford and Three Rivers support local children and families through stressful times in their lives. The family will have at least one child under five but often have more. Being a parent, whatever your situation, can be very challenging, especially when children are young. Many parents feel exhausted and overwhelmed by the stresses of family life. For some parents it’s a particular struggle because they are also coping with issues such as post-natal depression, their or their child’s illness or disability, isolation or multiple births. That’s when parents need support.
A trained volunteer visits the family for a few hours once a week for up to nine months. Home- Start Watford and Three Rivers also provide school readiness workshops and a counselling service for parents. We are excited to be part of Croxfest this year and will be making rain sticks and other crafts. We will also be selling some festival accessories!
Cassio Productions will be promoting their upcoming production of Spamalot at Watford Palace Theatre in November.

Featuring killer rabbits, flatulent Frenchmen and The
Knights who say… Ni!, this musical will have you looking on the bright side of life!
