New Herrington St Aidan's Team Sports work with young people from 5 - 17 we offer sports,coaching, healthy eating, family fitness, football training.
NHSATS have been working in the Coalfields community since 2004, we started with 50 children on our books and now have in excess of 200.
With support of funders A4A, Northumbria University, Linden Family Trust, SCC, this year we have been able to expand our activities from football and now include family fitness, healthy eating, arts and crafts, sugarcrafts and photography.
We have also been able to obtain a longterm lease from Herrington Club for Herrington Bowling Pavilion and surrounding grounds. Since April with the support of the Love Where You Live Fund from SCC, Northumbria Rehabilitation Services and Gentoo we are currently refurbishing the building and grounds, this will enable us to use the building for the young people to take part in activities during bad weather, also it can be used as changing rooms. At present it is a work in progress.
We have also developed an U15's girl football team and they are now training regularly at New Herrington.
It is safe to say that the group has come a long way from inception and happily we are still expanding and involving the local community in more of our activities.
Look out for future updates.
