A Royal Visit to a Boys' Club
Tonight is a big night for members of the London Federation of Boys' Clubs, for their patron, H.R.H. the Duke of Edinburgh will be paying them an informal visit during the course of the evening, arriving at the new Brixton Boys' Club for the televised programme Men in the Making.
Boys' Clubs have existed in London for over seventy years, and today there is a community of 250 clubs with thousands of members between eleven and eighteen years of age, and- this is linked with two thousand other clubs throughout Britain in the National Association of Boys' Clubs.
The Club at Brixton was formed recently, and as yet its membership is comparatively small. For tonight's occasion, therefore, it has invited members from other clubs to come and share a lively and strenuous evening. Among well known athletes to be present will be Roger Bannister putting boys through some fitness tests; Jim Peters training some other boys for the mile; while a jam session, and a film-making group in action, will present some other activities of this type of club. With so much criticism being levelled at the teenage group today, the Federation of Boys' Clubs can look with hope and confidence to its aims-to provide boys with "a chance to find personal fulfilment in a group of their own companions, and to grow to responsible and useful manhood". Some of the methods it adopts will be shown tonight.
