We often hear about the problems of children in inner city areas. Those of us who live in this region realise that our children face many of the same challenges and others besides. There is a lack of sports facilities and activities in rural areas; and the rise in transport costs has put access to facilities beyond the reach of many parents. Gretna Community Sport is aiming to transform the lives of the children in Gretna, Eastriggs, Kirkpatrick Fleming, Springfield and the surrounding area. We will provide training equipment for a variety of sports; we will pay for coaches to support our local primary schools in fitness but also in health and dietary education based on children’s love of sport; and we will subsidise the cost of transport for our children’s teams. Our activities will impact on adults in the area too. Already we have involved a number of adults in promoting our bid and in setting up our first training sessions. Please support our bid – you will be transforming lives in these small townships.
