Bountagu sometimes organises and runs a day trip or activity during school half terms. In February 2020, after a morning spent at the cinema, more than 40 parents, carers and children joined us at the nearby Lee Valley Athletics Centre where the children worked off their packed lunches with some brilliant trials and team races led by instructor Paul. It was great to experience some of our fantastic local facilities. A big thank you to Healthy Living Officer Debbie Baxter for hosting us and to everyone who came with us – what a great day!

The aim was to connect local parents and children, show them how closeby the athletics resources are, and maybe inspire some future Olympians! Bountagu organised the tour and activities with LVAC, combining it with a cinema trip. Both activities were promoted together through our existing media channels, and in local Facebook groups.
