Are you a volunteer worker involved in sport and play, a member of a Parish or Town Council, do you help to run your local playing field, or are you involved in any other way in providing sport or play to your local community in East Devon?

Are you a volunteer worker involved in sport and play, a member of a Parish or Town Council, do you help to run your local playing field, or are you involved in any other way in providing sport or play to your local community in East Devon? If so, why not come along to one of the sport and play workshops being run throughout Devon. The three hour workshop is subsidised by the Lottery funded Awards for All and costs only £10 per person. The workshop will: Provide funding advice for your future sport and play projects Give an introduction to the Grass Roots Grant funding stream Help you understand and address barriers to your local sport and play facilities Explore access audits and other tools Help you identify hard to reach groups and support their use of recreational spaces Provide an overview of the Disability Discrimination Act and the implications for management committees. The two workshops which are most local to East Devon are being held at: Kentisbeare Village Hall on December 4 from 2pm to 5pm. Kenton Village Hall in Teignbridge on January 14 from 6pm to 9pm. East Devon's Member Champion for Young People, Councillor Iain Chubb, said: "I would encourage anyone involved in providing sport and play to their local communities in East Devon to go along to one of these workshops and find out more. It could help you to find funding for your group or project, or help you get ideas about how to make sport and play more accessible for residents in your community." Booking is essential. For more information or to book your place phone Gail at the Community Council of Devon on (01392) 383443 or e-mail gail@devonrcc.org.uk
