Newlands Lane Park free activity sessions

26 July 2013

The summer holidays for young people in Workington just got better. Allerdale Borough Council in partnership with Carlisle Leisure Ltd will be delivering some free sports activities for young people on Newlands Lane Park site and it is now home to some football goal posts for use throughout the summer.

The sports activities will start on Monday 29 July and will run between 4 and 6pm on the site, and will continue to run during the holidays on the 5, 12, 19 August and 2 September.

There will be a number of sports at the sessions ranging from rounders, football, cricket, rugby and more and is open to any one aged 6 and above. No need to book a place; just turn up on the night.

There will also be an opportunity for residents to say what they would like to see in the new play area expected to be installed in the park following the summer. Charles Holmes Head of Community Services said “As well as having a great time at the park enjoying the activities over the summer children and adults can also help to shape how the park will look for the future and we want to hear what local children would like to see.”

Portfolio holder for Sports Development Mark Fryer says “The activities on the park are good because it gets young people out in the fresh air and engaged in healthy activities and it shows off one of the towns open spaces as a great place to play. Young people should make use of it and bring a ball down in the holidays, better still why not bring your parents or grand-parents down to enjoy the park”.

This is one of a number of schemes that is being supported to keep young people in Allerdale active and entertained over the summer holidays; other activities include the Summer PARCS scheme and 10p Swim sessions across the borough.
