Deputy Commissioner with young people attending multi sports Space activity

East Staffordshire Space activities hit the mark

A multi sports session in Stapenhill was the latest in a packed programme of fun summer activities taking place as part of Space 2022.

Deputy Staffordshire Commissioner for Police, Fire & Rescue and Crime, Helen Fisher dropped into the session, organised by Burton Albion Community Trust, to see young people trying their hand at a range of sporting activities.

The Space summer programme, which runs from 25 July to 26 August, brings together public, voluntary and private sector organisations to provide support for potentially vulnerable young people to help increase skills, improve health and wellbeing and create opportunities with an additional aim of reducing levels of anti-social behaviour.

Other activities taking place across East Staffordshire include footgolf, martial arts, swimming, fishing and a climbing wall.

Deputy Commissioner, Helen Fisher said: “After a difficult couple of years for everyone, it was wonderful to see the young people at today’s multi sports activity enjoying themselves outside in such a healthy and positive way.

“These activities are all about providing an opportunity for Staffordshire Police and partners to engage with young people who may be going through a difficult time to help nurture, support and develop them.”

Details of activities including how to book are available on the Space website so check out what’s going on in your area:
