Other youth groups stay in all the time and only go out sometimes. We go out all the time and stay in sometimes The organisation has emerged from a desire by its founders, and a recognised need within inner city communities, to engage people in informal education through out-of-doors activities. www.tynesideoutdoors.org.uk/
Fallen Angels is an exciting cheerleading squad, who perform to rock music and like to walk on the wild, and very creative, side. We differ from other teams, in that we don’t expect our new recruits to come in with years of gymnastics and dance experience. All we ask is that you give us your enthusiasm, team spirit, and a good work ethic – we will teach you the stunts, jumps, dance and tumbling that you need to enjoy the sport, keep fit, and hopefully win some trophies along the way. www.fallenangelscheer.com/
