News story published 30 January 2019

We are thrilled to announce a brand new youth sports satellite club for Bretton. In partnership with Peterborough City Council (PCC) and with funding from Living Sport, the new satellite club will be based at two locations in Bretton – CKH’s own South Bretton Family and Community Centre in Tyesdale and the Pyramid Centre in North Bretton.

In a joint bid, ourselves and PCC gained £9,600 funding from the National Lottery and Sport England, awarded through Living Sport, to run the Satellite Club, with coaching being delivered by Youth Dreams Project.

The Living Sport Satellite Clubs will offer a range of activities such as UV table tennis, dodgeball, boxercise, dance and fitness classes, and the young people who attend the club will decide the activities they want to do.

Kate Newbolt, Service Manager - Customer, Community and Stakeholder Engagement, said of the club, “This grant from Living Sport has given us and PCC a fantastic opportunity to provide the young people of Bretton with a great facility to meet up, have fun and of course, get fit, right in the heart of their community. We are looking forward to working with the brilliant Youth Dreams Project to give young people the chance to run their own sports club and do the activities they want to do, in a safe environment.”

The clubs will start on 4th February at the South Bretton Family and Community Centre in Tyesdale and run every Monday between 5pm and 6pm. The North Bretton club will start on 7th February at the Pyramid Centre, Watergall, and run every Thursday between 4.30pm and 6.30pm.
