Throughout July we will continue to deliver all our usual weekly activities, from Walk and Talks, Walking Football and Sporting Memories to Tiny Tangerines, Primary School and High School provision. There are a few extra dates for your diaries you may want to take note of too:
NCS Summer Starts (4th July)
Our NCS team is providing a two-week programme for young people where they will be spending a week at EYAM developing skills such as teamwork, problem-solving, creativity and leadership. The young people will then spend a week locally in Blackpool, working in a team on a social action project that will make a positive impact on a charity or a cause that means something to them.

Schools across Blackpool will come together to participate in the tournament at Stanley Park Sports Centre, with the winners being invited to Bloomfield Road for a tour and to visit Jimmy’s statue.
