Over 45 young people took part in a fun, free football afternoon in Stockport over the half-term holidays. The event was organised by Stockport Homes in partnership with Stockport County Football Club and the Power League.
The football sessions gave children, aged from 8 - 14, a chance to get professional coaching from Stockport County Football Club and take part in a small football tournament. Free tickets to Stockport County games were also given out.
The event gave children something active and positive to take part in over the February half-term and is part of Stockport Homes' plans to provide positive activities to help build communities and discourage anti-social behaviour.
Rebecca Parry, Education Officer, Stockport Homes said,
The event was a real success; we were so pleased that so many young people braved the miserable February weather to take part in a fun afternoon. We have been running this event for a number of years but this was the first time we chose to deliver it in February so thanks to everyone who took part!
