''I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you, your colleagues and the sports teachers who organised the Have a Go Day. It was so well ran and everyone was very positive. My child had great fun and I think it helped his confidence.''

"I attended this sports day event over the weekend and it was a great event, well organised and a great opportunity to meet new people. The coaches were amazing and made it fun! It was very inclusive and diverse, so friendly and for all ages. The event was great for me because I don’t know any person that is visually impaired. It was a great day and I think I will join the cricket group!"
