Sports day a sky-high success

Whether flying high into the sky or with feet firmly planted on grassy terra-firma, all-comers had a great time at the Central Park community sports day on Friday (August 18).

The day, organised by Boston Borough Council's events team, provided local clubs with opportunities to showcase the range of different sporting activities on offer in the area.

Transported, the Boston and South Holland-based arts organisation, and the artsNK Dance Team provided the rig for aerial dance which proved to be very popular. There are regular aerial dance classes during term time for ages 8 and up at the Peter Paine Performance Centre.

Clubs attending were TJ Gymnastics, Kuk Sool Won and Boston Golf Club. There was free face painting by Felicity, who attended courtesy of Longhurst Housing/Kiers Group.

Boston Golf Club representatives said they were delighted to see so many children giving the chipping and putting games a go.

"We are the oldest established golf club in Boston with an impressive record when it comes to bringing on youngsters, with two of our juniors going on to turn professional in the last few years. Our professional hold coaching sessions for boys and girls on Saturday morning and would be happy to see more children join in," they said.

Fran Taylor, the council's play and physical activity officer, said: "All clubs attending had a constant queue waiting to try the various sports on offer and were happy to have attended to showcase that there are many opportunities for children to start, stay and succeed in sport within their own community."
