Celebrating 1 year of Active Through Football


Our SO14 engagement programme celebrated its first year of work with activities, music, dance, food and more.

Active Through Football celebrated its first anniversary with a day of activities on Saturday, welcoming more than 100 local residents of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to St Mary's Leisure Centre to mark the occasion.

The event included a variety of multi-sport sessions, henna and face painting, dance routines and a selection of local food, all of which could be enjoyed for free.

Active Through Football brings together SO14 residents to get moving with fun, free, football-based activities, connecting with the communities of St Mary's, Northam and Nicholstown to help its people lead healthier, more empowered lives.

The programme is delivered in collaboration with a broad consortium of local partners, pooling expertise to ensure we work in the most effective way possible.

We run a variety of sessions for different groups every week, including refugee football, parent and child sessions, and women's only exercise. View our
