For 18 months, Suffolk Positive Futures has been providing free sports activities at Whitton Sports Centre for young people in the North West Area. Providing these free sessions helps break down barriers for those who might have otherwise been excluded. The Ipswich Borough Council Sports team is seeking to enter a partnership to extend this programme for a further year. Funding of £3,000 was agreed to enable this work to continue, including a sports project for girls on a Friday evening and a football project on a Wednesday afternoon.
The next meeting in the North West is to be held on Thursday 13 September, 7pm – Castle Hill Community Centre, Highfield Road, IP1 6DG
