As well as learning new skills and taking part in games, the youngsters will also make new friends, develop an interest in sport and healthy living, learn to work as a team and spend their time with positive role models.

'Exercise and fun'

Kirk Wheeler, community manager for Aldershot Town Football in the Community Trust, said: “It's great to get out and about during the long summer evenings, and youngsters of any skill level can go along to the sessions for some exercise and fun.”

Caroline Ryan, community safety manager for Safer North Hampshire, added: “Working with the Community Trust gives us a great opportunity to offer these sessions throughout the summer, giving youngsters something positive to channel their energies into – so come out and give it a go.”
