Clubs invited to community sports fair

ALL Whitby sports clubs are being urged to put Saturday 21 April in their diaries - this is the date of the 2012 Community Sports Fair taking place at Whitby Leisure Centre.

The fair will include a series of workshops on sports funding, coaching, safeguarding and CRB checks and will be free of charge to clubs which attend on the day.

Clubs are invited to give practical demonstrations within the main sports hall too.

Sports development officer Matt Hewison said: “These events are a great way of raising awareness of sports club and the participation and volunteer opportunities they have to offer community members.

“It is also a good opportunity to network with other clubs on examples of good practice.”

The fair, recently awarded the London 2012 Inspire mark, will run from 10am to midday.

A similar event for sports club in Scarborough and Filey runs at Scarborough Sports Centre the same afternoon, from 2pm to 4pm.
