The Community Games Tour is a Swindon initiative which has been set up to help bring local communities together to provide organised sporting events for all ages this summer.
Youths taking part in The National Citizenship Scheme (NCS), a Government-run opportunity for 16 and 17-year-olds, will be visiting five areas of Swindon to assist the Swindon Council in delivering various sports. This will take place from June 30th to August 3rd.
Students from Swindon College have developed different ways of promoting The Urban Community Games Tour including setting up a Facebook page and creative posters and banners.
The programme consists of five events, one taking place every day from 1pm to 3pm, at the following locations: Monday – July 30 - Quarry Road, Old Town, Tuesday July 31 -Meadowcroft, Stratton, Wednesday August 1 - Buckhurst, Parks and Walcot, August 2 - Sevenfields, Penhill and Pinehurst, Friday August 3 - St.Marks, Central
Sam Bramfitt, Curriculum Area Manager for Sports said:
“We are delighted to participate in the Government National Citizenship Scheme this year. We have a team of 45 students who have all created friendships with other students they have never met before which has been amazing. We are looking forward to carrying out our local projects to help the local community.”
All the planned activities will be tailored to the appropriate age groups; and will include, Frisbee golf, volleyball, football, dodge ball and tag.
