Calling all young Littleport residents
Published by rtownsend for Sanctuary Housing Association in Communities and also in Education, Housing
Youngsters from across Littleport have just one more week to take advantage of some exciting sports sessions which are being run in their local community.
Organised by Sanctuary Housing in partnership with Littleport Leisure Community Centre, the training sessions, run by fully qualified coaches, are open to young residents, male or female, aged 7-15 years.
The activities are taking place at the Parson’s Lane playing field or Littleport Leisure Community Centre most days for the rest of the summer holidays and will run until the end of August (for details see editors’ notes).
The exciting programme has been running since July and is giving participants the opportunity to develop their talents across a variety of sports – including football, tennis, badminton and archery – to help improve fitness and health, increase their confidence and self esteem, and allow them to interact and engage with other members of the local community in a positive way.
The sessions in Littleport form part of the national Sanctuary in Sport project involving the delivery of a range of activities to youngsters across the country, designed to encourage health and wellbeing and help keep communities active.
Andy Rutterford, Centre Manager from Littleport Leisure Community Centre, said: “So far we have had over 100 young people attending the activities, so it has been a real success with the local community.
“There is still a week left, so why not come along and join in the fun!”
Karen Johnson, Sanctuary’s head of housing operations for the East, added: “Sport and physical activity programmes provide the ideal platform for personal and social development of young people, so we are pleased to be bringing them sport and fitness activities through our partnership with Littleport Leisure Centre.”
