Haydon Wick Parish Council are supporting Draycott Sports' summer camp for young people with a donation of £1,500 from its budget.

Haydon Wick Parish Council have provided a helping hand to Draycott Sports, and its summer sports camp. 
 
The team at Draycott Sports Camp say it provides an active environment that is inclusive and engaging for all abilities. The camp focuses on helping children to be more active and to introduce them to new sports.

Mark Draycott from Draycott Sports Camp said: “All of the Draycott Sports Camp team are extremely grateful to the Haydon Wick Parish Council for supporting us to enrich our Holidays Activities and Food children's summer holiday with us.

"The extra funding has allowed our campers to stay on with their friends, to enjoy two more sporting activities, completing a whole day of fun at Draycott Sports Camp. Thank you so much for your support.”

Cllr Rebecca Ross, Community Development Committee Chairman said: "I’m pleased we have been able to offer support to children attending Draycott Sports Camp. The funding from Haydon Wick Parish Council will allow more children to attend the camp for the whole day, rather than having to leave after lunch.

"This is an opportunity for us to give something back to the children in our local neighbourhood. We believe it’s important to give back to our communities and to inspire and support our youth."

As part of the council’s growing programme of youth services it is proud to announce another series of graffiti artwork design workshops this Autumn.

The workshops will aim to utilise the council's legal graffiti wall, installed at Haydon Wick skate park. For more information,or  to book a place, members of the public can contact Kate via youthandcommunity@haydonwick.gov.uk
