Barton Sports Festival 2012
On Sunday 26th August we delivered our first Barton Sports Festival at Eccles Rugby Union Club.  This successful event saw over 300 people enjoy a fun filled afternoon of sports, arts & crafts.  Evolution Cheerleaders displayed their skill throughout the afternoon & offered 'have a go' sessions for community participation.  A variety os sports including athletics, cycling, rugby, football, cricket & boxing were of particular interest following the success of our Olympians.  Our hosts offered drinks & a BBQ for adults & children and the sun shone after lunch bringing more people out to enjoy the fun.  Many thanks to our partners at Eccles RUC, Evolution Cheerleaders, Greater Manchester Police, Greater Manchester Fire Service, Salford Youth Service, salford Community Leisure, Sport4life & all our volunteers for their contribution to a successful & enjoyable day.

We have 12 volunteers currently progressing through our scheme, some of whom have already gained valuable experience at festivals & events and have received free training to enhance their skills & opportunities for employment. If you live in the Barton Ward & are interested in what we have to offer via our volunteering scheme please contact us on 08432 120070
