Inspiring Communities

Let’s Get Sporty working closely with Loreburn Housing Association, Ae Primary School and the wider community to give young people opportunities to play sport. Coach Craig visits the school every Friday to deliver fun games and activities all in the fantastic facilities that the school has to offer. With so many families turning up as well, it's great to chat away and find out just what they would like in their community.

Ae primary is situated at the heart of the community and by working closely with them, Let's Get Sporty is hoping to continue its good work at giving young people in rural areas the opportunities they deserve.
