Brentford FC Community Sports Trust has been highlighting what they can offer to schools. The Trust works with schools in a range of boroughs in the local area. One school was at the new Gunnersbury Park sports hub earlier this month.
Ark Soane Academy, in Acton, is one school that visits the hub, which is a short trip away, regularly. At the site, the Trust can offer football as well as a range of other sports. It is a collaboration between Ealing and Hounslow Councils and involves Brentford FC Community Sports Trust, University of West London, the London International School and local leisure provider Better. The facilities, which were officially last year, include two top-level, floodlit 3G artificial pitches, as well as grass pitches, also suitable for rugby and cricket, plus an eight-team changing pavilion; a gym; a studio; and a sports hall, ideal for indoor sports.
The Sports Hub is being utilised by all of the Trust's departments, highlighting their mission of realising potential and providing opportunities to everyone. Sessions including Mini Bees and Tumble Bees take place weekly. More on the provision at Gunnersbury Park can be seen on the Trust website here.
