Get Active Burngreave

Story by Kathryn Mudge, South Yorkshire Sport

South Yorkshire Sport have recently got funding from Comic Relief and Sport England to deliver a range of sport and physical activities to help to improve lives of people in the Burngreave community. Following a three month consultation period, we are now offering funding to support local groups. This will enable them to deliver sport and physical activity which has a sustainable impact on the community and can empower people to lead healthier and active lifestyles.

South Yorkshire Sport will provide training and skills for anyone aged 14+ interested in supporting the project, through the Active Burngreave leaders programme. You are all welcome to attend the Active Burngreave launch event on 12th November 2016 2-5pm at the English Institute of Sport. A range of free activities will be on offer, with qualified sports coaches and local community leaders. We are hoping to put on a free minibus from Burngreave.

We’d love to hear from more of Burngreave’s people about how they think the Burngreave Messenger could best serve the community, so we’ve created an opportunity for you to tell us what you’d like us to do.
