The Sport England-funded Active Coast & Country launched at the Brunswick Shopping Centre over the weekend.

Sports development officer Matt Hewison said: “Our launch event went really well and we were overwhelmed with the interest we received from community members.

“People liked the range of activities and also our relatively low pricing structure.

“This is a great new project that will provide so many new sporting opportunities for people to participate in and get involved in sport.”
