Series of sport sessions begin

Seven free multi-sport sessions for children with disabilities are ready to kick off in Gloucestershire.

The initiative, which aims to keep disabled children active and involved in a range of sports, is due to begin on Wednesday at the Cotswold School.

Children aged seven and above can take part in sports including wheelchair football, Boccia, slalom and curling.

The afternoon sessions will build on the success of 4us2, which was part of the Summer off the Streets project.

Claire Dowan, Cotswold District Council's Youth Participation Officer, said: "This is an exciting new project that will provide local children and young people with the opportunity to play sport in a non-competitive and fun way.

"Working in partnership with Active Gloucestershire, we hope to sport and physical activity opportunities for disabled children in the Cotswold area."
