FREE October Half Term Activities

Pro Active Communities is funded by Active Dorset, with activity sessions delivered by local clubs; South Coast Tigers Basketball, Poole Phoenix Handball and Rippa Rugby. 39 sessions will be delivered across the week, in three areas, giving many young people the chance to participate in sports and activities free of charge.

The activities, which will be taking place from Monday 24th to Friday 28th October, will be delivered by experienced qualified coaches in a fun and social setting. All ages and abilities are welcome to attend, to try new sports and enjoy half term week playing games and learning new techniques.

Gary Head, Youth Participation & Insight Manager at Active Dorset commented; "This an exciting and free opportunity for young people to take part in activity that is run right at the heart of their local community. There's no payment required and no commitment either – turn up to one session or every one – it's entirely up to you!"

The daily sessions, funded by Active Dorset, are completely free to take part in, and no booking is required. All participants have to do is turn up and have some fun! The aim of the project is to encourage young people to participate in a sport they enjoy or perhaps have not tried before, and to build a community of participants who want to continue taking part in sport and physical activity after the half term programme.

The activities will take place on the courts at the Alderney West Community Centre, Boscombe Chine Gardens and Moore Avenue, West Howe. A detailed timetable of the event is as follows:
