Banbury youngsters can get fit and active as a local sports initiative returns for the New Year.
Activate Banbury, funded by Sanctuary Housing and delivered by Cherwell District Council, is offering free fitness and multi-sports sessions for young people aged between 11 and 16.
Weekly sessions are taking place at North Oxfordshire Academy, in Drayton Road, between 3.30pm and 4.30pm on Mondays and at Princess Diana Park, in Bradley Arcade, Bretch Hill, between 4pm and 5pm on Tuesdays.
The sessions will run until the end of March and are open to all, aiming to offer a wide variety of activities to get young people active and into a sporting habit.
Kate Winstanley, Sanctuary’s neighbourhood partnerships manager, said: “We are committed to projects that promote sports and fitness and help our residents lead happy and healthy lives.
“Activate Banbury has already been a fantastic success and we look forward to supporting more people to get fit and build confidence and skills that will help them in the future.”
Activate Banbury forms part of Sanctuary’s wider Love Sport initiative, which is taking place in neighbourhoods around the country and aims to engage more than 2,250 residents in sport and fitness activities.
