Back2Sport: fun, social activities to suit you T
he council is launching a £1 million project called Door Step Sport to get people active and be
a part of the Olympic legacy. Mobile teams of Activators and
Sports Leaders will travel throughout the area organising a wide range of sport and physical activity, all year round, for young people and adults. They will motivate and inspire people to take part in the lead-up to, and beyond, the 2012 Olympics. Back2Sport is one half of this project
and will enable adults to take part in fun, social activities when and where they want them. There’s no ‘one size fits all’ – it’s all about finding the right solution for each community. Sport England’s Rural Community
Fund awarded over £540,000 to the council to help develop the project over a three-year period.
26 The Back2Sport team will deliver
Netball, Football, Basketball, Street golf, Badminton, Archery, Nordic Walking, jogging and Buggy fit walks and classes. The second part of Door Step Sport
is Street Sport. It is aimed at ages eight to 18. The number of sessions will increase from 10 to 25 to give children and young people who hang around with nothing to do the chance to get involved in positive sport related activity. Activities include; Football, Tennis,
Volleyball, Rounders, Mobile Skate Park, Rugby, Basketball, Cricket, Rock-It-Ball and many more. For details of the Back2Sport project
please contact Michelle Spacey on 01724 297280. For more on the Street Sport project call David Boreham on 01724 297245.
The Hall is a fine example of a Regency mansion, filled with period furniture reflecting its long history. The award winning Victorian Walled Garden and 300 acres of parkland, woodland, duck ponds and deer park are a delight for any lover of the great outdoors.
There are stacks of things to do at the Farming Museum, including Tots Time sessions, over-60s reminiscence sessions and hands- on family activities. Call 01724 720588 for details.
Season tickets also allow free entry to events such as the Food Festival (17 June). A free open day on 1 April is an ideal chance to see what the park offers and buy season tickets at the early bird price.
