Last Saturday the 7th October saw the return of the annual Core Credit Union dlr Community 5K in Kilbogget Park. Back for the 9th year it once again proved to be a great afternoon of fun activity and inclusion, with nearly 1,200 people of all abilities taking part.
The weather played its part and aside from it being a bit windy (which made it tough on the route at times) it was a lovely afternoon to spend outside being active. A DJ was on hand helping create a fun and energetic atmosphere and Ashley from dlr Leisure brought everyone through a lively warm up.
All of us within sport know that a parent/carer is essential to a child’s life-long involvement and enjoyment in sport. Parents in Sport Week is an initiative running from the 2nd to the 8th October 2017 and will dovetail into already existing work staff/volunteers are engaged with. It’s an initiative to support your current safeguarding programme. We hope to use this week to highlight the valuable role parents fulfil, and the positive influence they have in supporting their child’s participation in sport.
Parents play a pivotal role in sport and young people depend on their support and encouragement.
