May Fit & Fed 🎳

You guessed it, Fit & Fed was back in May/June half term. 

The programme continued as it left off in Spring, two sessions a day over three days at Luton Primary School. 

Over 60 young people each day were immersed into a world of sporting and creative activities provided by Nucleus Arts, Olympia Boxing, Sport On Your Doorstep, Street Games, etc. All topped off with a nutritious lunch. 

We now begin preparations for our summer programme to ensure its a summer not to forget.  

Here’s a glimpse of the fun we got up to this time around!

Thanks to the support of our partners, we were out running Fit & Fed again this windy and wet February half-term.

Despite the weather, we were able to continue to offer more than just multisports this time around too, as Nucleus Arts joined us again twice a day.

 

The icing on the cake for this half term was Mike, the community chef, who joined us on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday making nutritious quesadillas, nachos and tacos with our young people. See you all in easter 🐣


Festive Fit & Fed 🎄

Thanks to our partners and Medway Go, we were able to run Fit & Fed on the run up to Christmas for the very first time at Luton Primary School. Similar to our fantastic October programme, we were able to offer more than just multisports this time around too. Nucleus Arts joined us twice a day and Creatabot popped in too, for a myriad of creative and engaging activities.

This three-day programme was made even better by a delicious hot festive lunch donated by Forks and Corks for all the young people to enjoy.

Luton’s Urban Trees Movable Forest has landed!

Medway’s first, one-of-a-kind ‘movable forest’ has landed in a Chatham primary school, thanks to resident-led organisation Arches Local.

Working together with Medway Plus, a locally-based charity, we were successful in gaining funding in November 2019 from PostCode Local Trust for £10,000.00 together with £5,000.00 Big Local Match Funding totaling £15,000.00.

Partly due to the complications around COVID-19, we were not able to fully deliver the goals of the original Luton’s Urban Trees submission. This led to us not being able to plant as many street trees as originally planned. In March 2020, Postcode Local Trust announced that the funding we had received was considered unrestricted (with certain conditions in place).

With this announcement in mind, we developed a ‘movable forest’ concept of placing large trees in large containers that could be flexibly moved around the Luton area of Chatham. These trees were planned to be initially placed at a local primary school which has no discernible tree canopy, suffering from swathes of hard standing playgrounds.

Active Arches Fit and Fed Summer 2020

We been very busy trying to get our Fit and Fed program up and running over these Summer Holiday and adhering to all the Covid 19 restrictions that are or were in place.

This led to us having to limit the numbers of young people that could attend to a maximum of 30 each day, which is very disappointing given on average we had more than double that amount the previous summer. Though unfortunate very necessary given the global pandemic and ensuring the safety and good health for those young people and their families who were able to take part in our summer program.
