We are a small group of local mums whose children attend the schools closest to Mint Street Adventure Playground on Southwark Bridge Road. Our kids play at this park regularly and we love the facilities there.
We recognise that the provision of affordable structured sports programs in this area is lacking and we want coached sports activities to be accessible to all children regardless of their socio-economic or cultural background or their ability to pay.
We love to see children integrate across all social strata through their active participation in sport and get involved in sports and develop skills that they may not otherwise have the opportunity to.
Without the space and money available, sports activities in schools are limited and we are aware of rising levels of obesity in very young children particularly in this Borough; so what better way to attack this than by providing kids a varied program of after school sports at this local venue?
As well as seeking funds from charities and business to keep sports coaching going at Mint Street, we also fundraise through sponsored activities and the odd cake sale now and again.
We are always on the lookout for sports coaches and volunteers, so please do get in contact if you would like to help out.
