Welcome all. We are the largest, free football club for girls in the UK. We have no hidden costs. We are open to all. We pride ourselves that we have never turned anyone away. We also provide a free training kit (Training top, Fleece, Waterproof, Hat & football kit).

We would now like to invite Reception & Year 1 to our exclusive girls football ground for fun football. Just come along & play at Stafford Leys Community Primary School on Sunday mornings 10-11am.

We also have teams for years 2,3,4,5 & 6.

Due to the teams now playing games, the above year groups parents need to text for training times.

We are also looking for more volunteer coaches. Mums & dads in all year groups.

Please contact club Secretary: Gavin 07545590876

Thank You

Future Faces Performing Arts School

Future Faces Performing Arts School is based at Hall Park Theatre in Lutterworth. We run many classes for children aged 3 – 18 and we believe students would benefit greatly from attending these sessions. At Future Faces we do so much more than sing, dance, and act. Our students develop excellent communication skills, grow in self-esteem and enjoy the benefits of improved coordination and fitness levels. While some of our children go on to enjoy success in the performing arts, all our students learn essential life skills that stay with them forever.

First session is completely free.

Warning Zone

Warning Zone is an education charity, delivering safety lessons in their state-of-the-art life skills centre, based in Frog Island in Leicester. During each year 6’s school year, we try and make a day trip to Warning Zone. Warning Zone is split into 2 different safety areas and the class children are split into small groups and experience the day with a volunteer guide. Warning Zone couldn’t exist without their volunteers. Sadly, Warning Zone’s volunteer numbers are at an all time low. They are currently in the process of recruiting new volunteers. They ask for a minimum of 5 hours a month from their volunteers, and uniform and full training is given! Do you have at least 5 hours to spare? It’s a great way to meet new people and enhance your C.V, or maybe you know someone who is newly retired or finds themselves with spare time on their hands. It fits in perfectly for school drop off and pick up times! It’s also a great way to keep up with current safety advice, especially in the ever-changing online world. If you would like more information please email volunteer@warningzone.org.uk or see their social media channels.

Why not go and have a look around the facility and chat with current volunteers - register for their open event on 30th March - https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/warning-zone-open-afternoonevening-tickets-287794259377
