Trust holiday camp roadshow off to a flying start

In partnership with StreetGames, FIVES Soccer Centre and Juice Community Project, the Trust are delivering a FREE holiday camp roadshow this week.

The roadshow started today (Tuesday) at Peel Park in Long Ashton, with over 100 children in attendance, taking part in football activities from 10am-2pm.

“These roadshows are an integral part of our plans over the summer holidays, we hope to engage with a new audience in different areas of Bristol," said Community Trust chief executive Dan White.

“Today it was great to see so many young Bristol City fans enjoying playing football within view of Ashton Gate Stadium.

“Our next camp is at Cadbury Heath, where we are expecting a similar response from the local community.

“The camps are totally free of charge, so we’d encourage those who live in that area to bring your kids down and have some fun."

Over 100 youngsters take part in free football sessions

Tomorrow's (July 25th) camp will take place at Parkwall School, Cadbury Heath from 12:30-4pm.

Hosted this summer at various locations in Bristol, the roadshow is running from Tuesday, July 24th to Friday, July 27th.

Each of the roadshow events are designed to give children aged six-12 the opportunity to learn and practice a range of techniques, whilst expressing themselves in a fun, safe and sociable environment.
