Mobile Youth Club – Coming Soon To A Place Near You!!

Innov8 Sportz CIC and JB Youth Services are pleased to announce a fantastic new project for 2018.  A touring Youth Club will bring activities to young people once a month in their own community, so they have the chance to engage with experienced staff, socialise, develop new skills and take on personal challenges.

This creative initiative, supported by Marlborough Area Board and the Local Youth Network, allows the many young people living in villages across the wider Marlborough community to access exciting activities, offered by experienced and well qualified providers, on their own doorsteps. Young people from school years 7-11 will have the opportunity to participate in sports sessions, drumming, cooking, graffiti art and much more over the six-month pilot.

The pilot will take place in the villages of Baydon, Lockeridge, Ogbourne St George and Ramsbury, and the sessions will also be open to those from the near hamlets and villages. Details of the full programme of sessions are coming soon and will be advertised throughout the communities and via a dedicated Facebook page –

The project will culminate in an activity day to take place centrally in Marlborough, bringing together everyone involved throughout the pilot – watch this space for more info!

Innov8 Sportz CIC and JB Youth Services are appealing to the community to get involved to make this a great success! Local volunteers are especially important to support the longer-term aims of the project. Volunteers will be DBS checked and fully supported, so please get in touch with your local parish council if you think you can help.

Step up and get going for 10 Minutes!!

There is evidence to show that a brisk 10 minute walk each day brings the following health benefits:

  • Increased physical fitness
  • Greater ease in performing everyday physical activities
  • Improved mood
  • Improved quality of life
  • Increased physical leanness and healthier weight

A regular 10 minute brisk walk can make you feel better in so many ways. It can boost your energy, clear your head and lift your mood, as well as lowering your risk of serious illnesses such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes.


ukactive put sport and physical activity into The Mix!

Physically active people have up to a 30 per cent lower risk of depression and ukactive has teamed up with young people’s charity The Mix to help tackle mental health issues among under 25s by getting them to move more.

ukactive will assist with academic research into effective youth interventions, a planned physical activity referral scheme for young people, activity pilot schemes in schools for pupils at high-risk of mental health issues and the creation of e-learning and signposting tools to help young people access physical activity programmes in their area.

The Mix, which was a lead partner for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry’s Heads Together campaign, is a free support service for under 25s, helping more than two million young people in the UK each year.

Government figures show an increase in mental health issues among young people since 2010, with one in four women aged 16-24 having suffered from anxiety and depression, compared to 15 per cent of young men.
