Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service - Preventing, Protecting, Responding

StreetStadiaTM will keep the boredom at bay during the school holidays

23/07/2013

The portable sporting arena, StreetStadiaTM, will be entertaining youngsters in Staffordshire throughout the school summer holidays.

"StreetStadiaTM is a fantastic opportunity for young people to enjoy physical activities and make new friends. By occupying youngsters during the school holiday, we are also helping to reduce anti-social behavior which often sees an increase during breaks."

Community Liaison Officer Katherine Staples
