Make Space for fun activities this summer

With the school summer holidays now in full swing even the most creative families can find themselves wondering how to occupy youngsters - and sending them to Space could be just the answer!

The Space 2018 summer activity programme was launched by the Police and Crime commissioner for Staffordshire, Matthew Ellis, and is aimed at giving young people aged between eight and 17 an opportunity to build on their skills, improve their fitness and get involved in some positive and fun activities.

Staffordshire Moorlands District Council is supporting the programme and encouraging young people to get involved.

Councillor Mike Bowen, cabinet member for sport and leisure at the Council, joined participants at a multi-sport event at Brough Park Leisure Centre in Leek.

He said: "The long school summer holidays are the ideal time for young people to get outdoors and take part in their favourite activities and try new ones so I'm delighted that, once again, we're offering an exciting and varied range of events in the Moorlands.

"It was great to meet some of the young people benefitting from the programme and I hope all those who join in the sessions have a great time, form some lifelong healthy habits and make new friends into the bargain."
