New programme of sporting activities to keep kids busy
A brand new free programme of sporting events has been launched in Tamworth with the aim of keeping local children both occupied and fit during the February half-term school holidays. Tamworth Borough Council's Sports Development Team has unveiled its 'Street Sport' programme of fun activities which will be coming to a park near you throughout the half term break which runs from Monday 19th February to Friday 23rd February. The sports activities are largely aimed at 13-18 year-olds, but ages outside of this range will be encouraged to join in. The project begins on Monday the 19th with a series of activities for half term, and will continue for a further 30 weeks, thanks to 10,994 funding from Tamworth Community Safety Partnership and the Staffordshire Police and Crime Commissioner. Sessions are being run by Tamworth Borough Council's Sports Development Team with two qualified enhanced DBS cleared sports coaches.

Councillor Stephen Doyle, Cabinet member for Communities and Wellbeing at Tamworth Borough Council, said: "I am delighted that the sports development team has been able to secure funding from the Tamworth Community Safety Partnership and OPCC to deliver a range of free sports activities for young people in Tamworth. The opportunities will promote further involvement in fitness and sport and there are also places for people to volunteer and assist to deliver worthwhile activities." No booking is required, just turn up at session time and join in.
