Riverside club is held every Wednesday between 3:30 and 5:00pm throughout the school year.
Take a look at Sela’s interview with Mr Burt:
Q: When did it start?
A: Riverside club started in August 1991.
Q: How long have you been a part of it?
A: Since the day it began. It was started by me and Mrs Burt, and Mr and Mrs Liddle.
Q: Why is it called the Riverside club?
A: It’s called the Riverside club partly because I live on Riverside Avenue, but also because when the club started, it was in the Scout hall on Riverside Avenue.
Q: What gave you the idea to start the Riverside club?
A: Well we noticed that there were a lot of kids who didn’t have much to do after school, especially when there were no winter sports on. So we thought that we’d start a club that could give people fun things to do once a week after school, and that they could do camps in the holidays.
Q: Where do you get all your game ideas from?
A: Well Sela, two places really. One is from experience and friends and from reading books. I’ve acquired those games over a long, long time. The other place I get them from is, I make them up!
Sela: Thank you Mr Burt for your time.
Mr Burt: You’re very welcome.
