The Trust is delighted to inform you that we have received £870 from the MARS in the COMMUNITY FUND via the Norfolk Community Foundation
which will go into the South Lynn pot.
This will enable us to continue our current sports sessions and to look at adding a variety of sporting
activities for the benefit of the youngsters and the older age groups.
Also we had a BOUNCE session yesterday funded and run by Enable East using
Big Lottery money. 18 youngsters and 5 adults from South Lynn attended for activities and games promoting healthy eating, physical activity, and emotional
well being. The highlight of the day was to see the youngsters preparing and eating a healthy lunch of pasta, salad vegetables, chicken, and wraps...great fun!
Enable East have kindly agreed to pay for a trip to Banham Zoo on the 14th August for youngsters and parents from South Lynn. We will be taking a
minibus supported by one or two cars so we hope to be able to take a party of 20 to 25 for the day out. Encouragingly we are now seeing the parents coming
along and asking to be involved which what we hoped for when we started the football sessions two years ago.
We also hope to be working further
with Enable East to lay on other activities during the Summer holiday and through till Christmas.
Finally we have just started a 6 week
session of Street Dance for girls at Providence Street with the support of Sam Gaughran.
Sam is organising an increasing number of sporting activities
in West Norfolk, the latest being Basketball sessions on the court in the Walks which start shortly.
