Craven Terrace Community Fayre

The Saturday on 22 June was fun for all guests and a big success for local charities. Our local primary school, a scout group, a holiday scheme for disadvantaged children and PIP (for people with learning disabilities) raised their profile and some funds. The main beneficiary though was the Friends of St Mary’s Hospital. The final donation will be confirmed next time. This year we had some traditional games like splat the rat, boules and skittles, which was a joyful addition for all age groups. Music, food and drinks were good, too. Hope you can make it next year.


Happy Birthday Ida!

Ida Upham-Battlogg is our third member in recent years to become one hundred years old. She celebrated with family from Austria and the UK and received loads of cards. Of course one was from her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Congratulations from us, too!


Bring & Buy

Our Bring & Buy on 18th May raised 370 for PIP, a charity for people with learning disabilities. They were delighted to use the money for a trip to School of Rock. Adam, their service coordinator, wrote to us "Thank you again for this wonderful opportunity, the students had a fantastic time." You can see it in the picture. Many thanks to the donors, shoppers and helpers!


Happy birthday Cody!

Doreen and Daniel Scording had a birthday gift on 20 May this year. It was the very first birthday (zero years old) of their son Cody. He is fit and growing fast. Congratulations to all of them!


Donation for Friends of St Mary’s Hospital

At the end of the Memorial Service for John Grange we collected for the Friends of St Mary’s Hospital. It resulted in £108 going to the good cause. Thanks to all the donors.


Settled Status Scheme

The British government created this scheme to register all EU citizens. People who have lived in the UK for more than 5 years can apply for Settled Status. People who have not been in the UK for 5 years yet, can apply for Pre Settled Status which can lead to Settled Status.

The application is free and the deadline for applying is 31 December 2020. Every EU Citizen should apply for this scheme, unless they already have a British passport, leave to remain or leave to enter the UK in an old passport.

The Settled status will give you the right to work in the UK, use the NHS, study and enrol in education, access public funds such as benefits and pensions (if you are eligible for them) and travel in and out of the UK.

With Settled Status you can leave the UK for up to 5 years before losing this status. After successful application, the Home Office will email you and provide a link to an online service that you can use to view and prove your status. You will not get a physical document.

The German YMCA will offer help if needed for Settled Status applications from September onwards for its members.

New Volunteers

My name is Jan Kümmel. I'm from St. Wendel. It's a little nice town in the south-west of Germany. I have just graduated from high school. In my spare time, I play football and swim. I also like traveling. I'm really looking forward to my EVS!




My name is Mouna Mouami. I am currently 18 years old and I just finished school. I come from a small town 40 kilometres from Frankfurt named Groß-Umstadt in Hessen, Germany. I enjoy being outdoors to relax or to do sport. Otherwise I am interested in art and music since I like making music myself. I look forward to the next year at the German YMCA!



I’m Michele Parisi, from German. I would describe myself as a humorous, kind and open-minded person, who likes to get to know new people, spend time with friends and help others. My absolute passions are music (piano, saxophone…) and different sports (tennis, table-tennis, volleyball…).



A very warm welcome to all three! The Team
