Vikings' Summer Programme effective in engaging local community

THE Widnes Vikings are now celebrating after enjoying a fantastic summer in the community, with 287 local young people, aged between 6 to 16. All of those celebrating have taken part in the Vikings 4 week summer rugby programme.

The objective of the programme was to provide safe, fun sport sessions that were accessible to the whole community. A number of the Vikings sessions were delivered free of charge in community settings across Halton including Victoria Park, Hough Green, and Upton Community Centre in Widnes, and Grangeway Community Centre, Heath Park, and Runcorn Hill in Runcorn.

This summer the Vikings have also delivered the 'Join the Momentum' dance programme, which culminated in 27 young people from Halton dancing alongside 394 others during half time at the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup Final between Leeds Rhinos and Hull Kingston Rovers.

Over 100 youngsters have also taken part in the Landscape World Summer Rugby Camp.

Edward Price who attended a Landscape World Summer Rugby Camp said:- "I love the camps. I liked training with all the players and I enjoyed training on the i-Pitch."

Richard Munson, Vikings Community Integrated Director said:- "This is the 1st year we have delivered such a broad programme of activity during the summer and we have been delighted that so many young people have come and taken part. In particular we would like to thank the venues and the local partners that supported our programme including Young Addaction, Halton Clinical Commissioning Group, and Halton Borough Council Sports Development."
