Counting down the days:
Get Berkshire Active has a new initiative to help clubs and organisations increase attendances and memberships at their sessions. ‘Summer Sessions’ will be coming to Berkshire this summer and we are looking for clubs/organisations to sign up and add activities to our attractive new Activity Finder.
Clubs who sign up will receive:
Marketing support – your sessions will be listed on our activity finder, which Get Berkshire Active will be widely promoting.
Funding – up to £5 per person per session (maximum 6 sessions per participant, participants must be aged 16-25 years and must be signed up to Summer Sessions with a valid user ID. Agreed amount must be reduced from participant sign up fee).
Get Berkshire Active can only provide funding for those participants aged 16-25 years. If you conventionally don’t target this age group we can still help promote your sessions through our activity finder.

Register your activities to Summer Sessions today.

A fantastic opportunity for you to experience sailing and windsurfing. Berkshire Sailing Training Centre and Datchet Watersports are offering a range of taster sessions, so getting
involved could not be easier!
