Portadown Gets Active went “Under The Sea” this Easter and a fortunate spell of great weather allowed plenty of outdoor activities for all involved!
Day 1 included a walk to Portadown People’s Park for some sports, with a great variety of fun and engaging games to start off the 3-day programme. (A huge shout out to Armagh City, Banbridge & Craigavon Borough Council Sports Development for providing their coaching expertise.)
Day 2 included a trip to Exploris Aquarium; a first visit for the majority of the participants, but certainly not the last!
Day 3 was Family Day, which always provides a great way for parents to meet the team of young volunteers and chat with partners and staff. A fantastic lunch was served after a visit from CYPSP, Parentline NI, NIACRO / Family Support Hub and Children in Northern Ireland (CiNI). And not forgetting the various games, challenges, riddles and lots of prizes in the form of sweet treats! This finale day is one of the highlights because it is organised by the programme’s Aspire leaders and all the games and activities are created and delivered by them.
Such a programme would not be possible without local corporate sponsor, ALMAC, who have supported the delivery of the Portadown Gets Active programme over the past 4 years.
A huge thanks also goes to all of the partners involved in the PGA programme (Oasis, CiNI, CYPSP, ABC Council, Family Support Hub, SHSCT and the PHA).
