The StreetStadiaTM transforms open space into a dynamic sporting arena. Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service, in partnership with the Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Safer Communities Community Interest Company (CIC) have provided the StreetStadiaTM for the young people of Cannock to enjoy during the Easter Holidays.

Children aged from 8 – 17 are invited to come along on a variety of dates in the coming weeks to enjoy an assortment of free games and activities including dodgeball, football and volleyball.

Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service’s Cannock Risk Reduction Co-ordinator, Katherine Staples said: "StreetStadiaTM is a fantastic opportunity for the local young people in the area to enjoy physical activities and make new friends.

"We are hosting events throughout the rest of March and into April at Cannock Community Fire Station, Cannock Park, Hednesford Park and Cannock Stadium which young people can come along to and have some fun.

"Anyone who wants to come and use the StreetStadiaTM can check dates, times and locations on the event section of our website and then just turn up in appropriate clothing and footwear and enjoy the arena."

A special Easter event will be held at Hednesford Park on April 5 between 12pm and 3pm by Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service and Friends of Hednesford Park.

The StreetStadiaTM will be available for team games and there will also be an interactive road traffic collision experience on offer for people to see what it’s like to be a car crash and be extracted by firefighters.

Katherine added: "There will be plenty going on at the Easter event, including egg and spoon races, a visit from Bounce the Easter bunny and the youth bus will also be there."
