Young people in Chester can look forward to a fun and active summer thanks to a jam-packed sports and activity programme provided by Sanctuary Housing and local police community support officers.

Sanctuary will be hosting a series of multi-sports and youth activity sessions at Sycamore Field in Lache, Limewood Field in Kingsway and Wealstone Lane in Upton during July and August.

The multi-sports are open to young people aged 7+ and participants will be able to try a wide range of sports including football, basketball, hula hooping and rounders.

The youth activity sessions are for ages 13 to 19 and will offer the chance to socialise, play Xbox games and try out ‘Panna’ street football.
