Go4it! ‘Spooky Sports Day’

By November 8, 2017Event, Sport

This Halloween, Go4it! hosted a ‘Spooky Sports Day’ in Abercwmboi Rugby Club, Aberdare.

The free event saw local sports providers, such as Aberdare cricket Club, Abercwmboi Rugby team and Aberdare Girls Football team, offer free taster sessions of all the different sports that are available for young people in the area.

The rugby club provided coaches to run fun rugby drills and games for the children to participate in.

Richard Lawrence, Go4it! activities co-ordinator, said: “Families are always looking for something to do on Halloween but it can often be a costly time. We wanted to give families the opportunity to come together and have fun whilst trying some new activities.”

“We had 106 children through the doors throughout the day with plenty of activities for people of all ages to have a go at.

“If the children got tired of doing all those sports, there were craft sessions available with Ziggies, making spooky book markers or scary paper pumpkins.”

Go4it!’s dietitian, Rhona, was on hand at the event to give families ideas on healthy Halloween snacks to make at home. Children made pumpkin oranges, peanut butter apple teeth and ghost bananas.

A spokesperson from Abercwmboi RFC said “It was a great day all round.” and Claire from Phoenix Dance and Gymnastics club backed that up by saying “it was fab, the girls really enjoyed”.
