Breaking Boundaries

ICC cricket trophy

The ICC cricket world cup trophy came to Slough town centre in May. While fans posed for photos with the famous silver cup, the Active Slough team were on hand with fun cricket-based activities for local schools.

Alongside the trophy there were a number of stalls where residents could find out about opportunities to participate in cricket locally.

Kam Bhatti, active communities manager, said: “The world cup trophy tour was a great feature in an action packed cricket year.

“Our Breaking Boundaries project launched last year. The project is helping build community relationships, and creating pathways for our young people to get more involved within their community through the medium of cricket.

“The young community champions aged between 14 and 25 are helping to foster relationships between different community groups which in turn are making Slough a more cohesive and stronger town.”

Check out the Breaking Boundaries webpage for all the upcoming events.

New walking programme

A new walks programme will be starting in September, with training for volunteers and walk leaders happening this month (July). Keep an eye out for the programme and if you’re interested in becoming a walk leader in future, please email activeslough@slough.gov.uk
