Thamesmead Youth Sports Festival

The first ever Thamesmead Youth Sports Festival took place on Friday, 18 April. Put together by Thamesmead's youth forum Thamesmead Youth Voice and supported by Trust Thamesmead and the Tri Forum, young people aged 11-19 who live or go to school in Thamesmead joined in a wide range of sports, including football, badminton, table tennis and basketball.

“The young people really enjoyed the day,” said Trust Thamesmead's Community Development Manager Janice Songhurst-Jones, adding: “Crossways Gym put on a display and the event provided a good networking opportunity for the Trust and other service providers - we know Working with Men is looking at ways of working with Charlton Athletic Race Equality (C. A. R. E) Partnership and Tan-Gun Tai Kwondo is looking at ways of making martial arts more accessible to local young people.

“Thamesmead Youth Voice put a lot of hard work into orgainising the day - they felt their hard work had paid off and that they had each benefited from orgainising the event.

“We hope to make the sports day an annual event and build on it year-on-year.”
