Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service - Preventing, Protecting, Responding

Sporting activities arranged across the south of the county

24/03/2016

Young people across the south of the county can keep boredom at bay during the Easter holidays by taking part in a series of free sport sessions.

“Many young people are unable to access sporting facilities in their communities. The MUGA portable arena means we can reach a wide variety of locations and take the free activities to them."

Community Safety Officer for South Staffordshire, Rachel Spruce

The sessions will use a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) portable arena to transform open spaces into sports stadiums for young people.

An assortment of free games and activities will be organised by Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service staff. 

Community Safety Officer for South Staffordshire, Rachel Spruce said: “Many young people are unable to access sporting facilities in their communities. The MUGA portable arena means we can reach a wide variety of locations and take the free activities to them.

“This sporting initiative gives young people the chance, not only to take part in various sports but to try new activities and to play, have fun and build friendships. We want to encourage people to improve their own health, wellbeing and safety.

“By giving young people beneficial activities to take part in we have helped to reduce the number of small grass, rubbish and bin fires deliberately started during the holidays.”

The sessions will take place at:

                          Brickbridge Lane, Wombourne on March 31 from 5-7pm
                          Hednesford Park , Cannock on  April 4 from 6-7pm
