Sports – a new initiative

A Chara,

A Community Sports and Physical Hub has been developed in Edgeworthstown as part of the National Physical Activity Plan. The Hub itself is based in St. Marys Community Campus CLG on the Granard Road in Edgeworthstown. The Sports Hub will give the people of Edgeworthstown and surrounding areas the chance to experience the benefits of a Sports Hub. The Hub will maximise local sports facilities through linkages with local schools, sports clubs, community groups and other physical activity groups. The main objective of the Sports Hub is to increase the number of people of all ages participating in sport and physical activity in their communities targeting disadvantaged areas with a specific focus on adolescents/young people. If you would like more information on the Community Sports and Physical Hub, Please come along to our open meeting on Thursday the 28th June at 8pm in St.Marys Community Campus Clg. Please feel free to contact me with any queries you may have.

 

Regards,
