We are holding a community cohesion through sports as part of the 30th Anniversary of Black History Month celebrations between 23-27 October 2017 at the Sporting Village, Basildon, Essex. We will be offering sessions in the sports with the supervision of trained and qualified coaches: Basketball, Vollyball, Football and Athletics. We wanted to help improve the quality of life for our community. This project has therefor been designed to be fun, easy to engage with, and is open for EVERYBODY to participate, no matter your level of fitness or talent. There will be five categories for participants for each sport: 1. Veterans 40+, 2. Men's (over 16's), 3. Women (over 16's), 4. under 16 (boys/girls). This may vary dependant on those registered. The main purpose of this project is to promote active engagement within our growing multicultural and diversity community that our borough is becoming. It's time for the community to get together for a festival of fitness, wellbeing and inclusion.
