Community Trust's Live Activity Sessions Return

13 January 2021

Barrow Community Sports Trust delivered over 50 live videos during the first lockdown – and they’re back with more this time around to help you and your family through the coming weeks.

With exercise an essential part of lockdown life, Community Sports Trust Manager Craig Rutherford has teamed up with his own two children to help you and yours stay fit and active in 2021.

Encouraged by the popularity of their football skills videos last year, they are now returning to the back garden to provide fans with some ideas for fun activity to do with their own families.

“When schools and grassroots sport were stopped during the first lockdown, Kayden and I wanted to do something to help families and spend some quality time together,” Craig explained.

“We advertised that we would do some football skills and activities in the garden and stream them live to Facebook – and they went down so well it turned in to a daily activity!

“For over five weeks we streamed live five days a week from Monday to Friday, developing from football skills to games you can play with your family – and even my daughter Grace began joining in!

“To build on the fun, we ran a competition to rename our garden as a stadium and, as a result, The KC Garden Stadium was created and made official by a professionally made sign from Graphix Signs.

“That sign remains pride of place on our shed door to this day and acts of a nice reminder to the kids about what they’ve done to stay positive during tough times.

“With recent news, we thought it would be a good idea to reopen The KC Garden Stadium and begin the streaming again – and hopefully it’s something a little positive to help families keep going and enjoy physical activity together.”

Sessions are going to be live each Monday and Friday from 3pm on the Community Trust’s Facebook page and will include football skills, 30-second challenges and some fun games that families can play together.

“We really hope this can help lift spirits during another difficult period for everyone so we hope as many people as possible can join us and have some fun keeping fit during the lockdown,” added Craig.
