Youth & Sport

The Youth and Sport Working Group has been set up, in response to comments in the Parish Plan questionnaires, to try to source new ideas for youth entertainment and sport for the parish.

Some of the ideas that are being researched are:-

 1. Small Playing Field and the Community Park – There were many suggestions for the expansion and improvement of facilities on these two areas. Grants need to be obtained to carry out the ideas that have been put forward and conversations have been held with local officials about the procedure. This avenue of enquiry will be followed up.

 2. Cycling Proficiency Tests – CRB checks and volunteer training sessions have been applied for. The primary school Headteacher is extremely keen on this being included as part of the learning for Year 6 children.

 3. Fitness Classes – It is hoped to hold a few classes in the Village Hall and a Fitness Instructor is being sought.

 There are many more suggestions that arose from the questionnaires that need to be investigated and anyone who feels they can spare a few hours here and there would be warmly welcomed to join the group.
