Free community sports sessions delivered by AFC Fylde Community Foundation have been given the thumbs-up by all the youngsters who took part.

The sessions were delivered across the Fylde Coast during the school October half-term holiday.

A wide variety of sessions were on offer at different locations between 6pm-8pm each day, enabling as many local children as possible to take advantage of the offer.

The community sports programme offers children the opportunity to get involved in physical activity and be more active in a safe and fun environment.

The well organised and structured sessions delivered by the Foundation team not only support the children to increase their level of exercise and adopt a healthier lifestyle, but also encourage them to make new friendships and grow in confidence.

The feedback from the sessions has been overwhelmingly positive with everyone voting it a huge success – including the Foundation team. 

Foundation Director Tom Hutton is delighted at the response to the free community sports programme. He said:

“The aim of the Foundation is to work with and support as many members of the local community as possible. The free sports sessions are a great way to get youngsters involved. We deliver them in as many locations as possible for ease of access and as they are free of charge, there is no obstacle to joining in the fun.

“To be able to offer the opportunity for children to take part in sports who may not normally have the opportunity is a great feeling for me and my team of staff. I’m delighted the sessions turned out such a success and we look forward to delivering them again soon.”
