Council helps little ones enjoy sports

Children at Lower Willingdon Pre-School have been enjoying sports after being awarded grants.

John Pritchett, chairman of Willingdon and Jevington Parish Council, recently visited the nursery school and presented a cheque from the council for £500. The money is being used for the pre-school’s Sporty Tots project which aims to provide sport training with professionals and promote healthy children through sport. 

Cllr Pritchett said, “It is fantastic to see sport and exercise promoted at this age level, especially as this year we hosted the Olympics which has increased the awareness of sport and the need for regular exercise.”

Pam Tingley, manager of the pre-school, is delighted with the grant and has thanked the parish council.
