The AFC Fylde Community Foundation will be holding IT specialist programmes all over the Fylde Coast, free of charge for members of the local community. The programmes will enable people to strengthen their Microsoft and communication skills.

The IT programmes have been introduced to help the unemployed gain employment and Community Foundation Director, Tom Hutton believes it gives a great chance for people to not only improve their IT skills but enhance their C.V when applying for jobs. “I’m fully aware of how competitive the job market is. People are struggling to gain employment but enrolling onto this IT specialist programme gives you an edge over potential competitors. Being skilled with a computer or laptop will impress any employers.”

In other news, The AFC Fylde Community Foundation’s Easter Multi-Sports Camps are well underway and there is still time to book on. With special guest appearances from AFC Fylde club mascot Syd the Seagull, first team players and managers, record numbers have been registered at the Multi-Sports Camps.   

AFC Fylde Manager Dave Challinor was delighted to see many children at the Easter Multi-Sports Camps. He said, “It was great to be able to pop into Kellamergh Park yesterday and see so many kids enjoying themselves, even with the terrible weather conditions. It’s good to be able to meet them, speak to them and show them the facilities and trophies. They are the future of our club. We want young boys and girls to be able to not only use, enjoy and develop at the facilities but also have the opportunity to represent and call AFC Fylde ‘their’ team.”
