Hastings Borough Council’s StreetGames project held a festival of sport for girls aged between 12 and 18 during the half-term break.

The Us Girls Rocks event took place at Freedom Leisure Helenswood Sports Centre on Wednesday, October 29.

Councillor Dawn Poole, the council’s lead member for leisure and amenities, said: “The aim of this event was to get females into sport and physical activity to create a sporting habit for life. Girls had the opportunity to try sports from clubs across the town including Hastings Predators Floorball and Fighting Tigers Gym. Fifty-eight girls participated in more than 15 different physical activities and sports on the day.” People interested in volunteering on the StreetGames Project should contact Ken Dullaway at kdullaway@hastings.gov.uk.
