Sandwick Youth Community Centre
The Sandwick Youth & Community Centre (SYCC) is a community building in the heart of Sandwick where people of all ages can meet in warm, safe and welcoming surroundings.
There are a number of external user groups who use the building on a regular basis, as well as the hall being available for hire for Birthday Parties, Family Gatherings, Music Practice, Meetings, Craft Groups, etc etc. The Shetland Islands Council runs a Youth Club on Friday nights for Juniors and Seniors.
There are 4 trustees and a Management Committee who are responsible for the fabric of the building and car park, for the football pitch, for the playpark, and for the Sailing and Boating Club premises at Leebitton as well as the management and day to day running and development of the centre. All of these people are volunteers who give up their time willingly to ensure that the Youth & Community Centre thrives and grows.
Sandwick Under 5’s
Sandwick Under 5’s
Run on Thursdays 09:30-11:30.
Sandwick Under 5’s have a lovely room which has craft materials, toys, books, etc, as well as a games hall full of soft play, slide, balance bikes, scooters, ride on cars and more. The building is right beside the play park so we like to get outside as much as possible.
All pre-school children and parents/carers are welcome. We love to meet people from Sandwick and also the wider community. The kettle is always on.
Sandwick Youth Club
Sandwick Youth Club is split into two age groups
Juniors (P4-7) 18:00 – 20:00
Seniors (S1+) 20:30 – 22:30
These groups are run every Friday during term time in their very own dedicated area of the Sandwick Youth and Community Centre.
Everyone is very welcome. Please see our Facebook page for more details.
Sandwick Sailing & Boating Club
Established in 1896, Sandwick Boating Club is one of the longest running sailing clubs in Shetland. Operating out of the picturesque setting down at Leebitton, the club is always keen to welcome new members. The club puts a significant focus on the development of junior sailing, with anyone over the age of 10 enjoying the opportunity to learn to sail a Mirror Dinghy. With a small fleet of larger dinghies, the club can also cater for adults. The season generally runs from May to September, and, as always, is weather dependent!
Creative Kids Art and Crafts Club
Run by Wendy Best, Creative Kids offers a range of crafts activities for pre-school and Primary 1-5 children. Sessions are held in the Under 5s room at SYCC, usually on a Tuesday from 6.30pm to 7.30pm with occasional special events. A snack and all materials are included.
