More than 125 young people and children got involved in the October half term activities. We ran a youth sport basketball camp, two football camps and a parkour session for first-timers. Over in the disability sport sector we had swimming, a multi-sport event, more football and an arts/music session. Central Park Leisure Centre, Chafford Sport Complex, Brittons Academy, Hornchurch Leisure Centre, Fairkytes and the Robert Beard Centre each hosted one (or more) of the activities on offer. Everyone Active, West Ham United, Essex Cricket, Five Star Basketball and MyPlace staff all worked with Havering Health & Sports Development to ensure that venues and activities were tailored to the needs of the participants.
Some of the feedback from the young people and parents of the children:
"Kids both told me they enjoyed today, so thanks to you and your team for always making us feel so welcome."
"These sessions helped get my kids up off the couch and out of the house these holidays."
"I always enjoy coming along, meeting new people, working on new skills and having fun with coaches."
We look forward to hosting our children and young people again this Christmas!
