Posted onPosted on 6th Aug

Positive engagement with young people is among the key goals of the multi-agency Premier League Kicks Roadshow, which is holding its next activity-packed session on Friday at Sutton Lawn Recreation Ground, Sutton, from 11am-2.45pm.

The Premier League Kicks Roadshow is an initiative between Nottinghamshire Police, Nottingham Forest Community Trust and local organisations to provide fun activities in open spaces while the Covid-19 restrictions exist.

The socially-distanced activities include football, tennis, foot-golf, multi-sport and fitness challenges. The sessions are aimed at youngsters between the ages of eight to 16.

The force’s Citizens in Policing Youth Outreach Worker Romel Davis said: “The aim of the project is to get local kids involved in positive activities in their local community as restrictions ease. It also gives the police the opportunity to continue to engage with vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young people.”

Premier League projects manager Declan Barker said: “It has been fantastic to work strategically with Nottinghamshire Police to deliver COVID safe sessions to engage young people in areas of deprivation across Nottingham. We are excited to continue to drive participation throughout the summer.”

Director of Helping Kids Achieve youth group and also the current BBC Sports Personality of the Year Unsung Hero Award winner, Keiren Thompson, also supported a recent session.

He said: “It was great to interact and engage with young people through sports as it is much needed in a time where youth clubs are closed. “It has given them an opportunity to take their mind of things that are happening around them.”

All social distancing and government guidelines are followed throughout the sessions.
