What’s happening at Fives Yardley?

We have had a fantastic and busy start to the school summer holidays here at Fives Yardley with plenty of activities taking place for the children within the local community. We have Sporting your Futures delivering a summer multi sports camp for the first 5 weeks of the holidays.

This programme has proved to be a great success with lots of children attending of all ages and genders to take part and enjoy the Sports activities provided. We have teamed up with Vision football academy to also run our own in house summer camp which also proved a hit with the local community. We were fortunate to have such a great group of kids aged 5-12 years that were a credit to their parents. Although the British weather let us down from time to time the kids all conducted themselves very well and were a joy to have. Along side the two camps we have running we do a pay and play programme where children can turn up at any time between 9am-5pm and use a pitch with their friends or peers for a small fee of £4-£5 per player.

This is a great way for the youth members of the community to not only socialise in a safe and inclusive environment but to also make new friends and get their daily exercise in. The pay and play sessions are very popular here at Yardley, we see a lot of kids in the local area attending the site several times a week to get their football fix and they enjoy getting out and having a kick about with their friends.’
