Free sport and activities on offer in Cirencester

Activius, which was twice postponed due to the Covid pandemic, is taking place in the grounds of Kingshill School from 11am-4pm on Saturday, September 10.

The free event will give people the chance to sample the wide variety of sports and fitness activities on offer in the area, and there will also be an opportunity to apply for bursary support – enabling young people to join the sports club of their choice.

Traditional sports including football, cricket, rugby and tennis will be on offer, as well as activities such as archery, dance, fencing and martial arts. 

Other entertainment will include an inflatable bungee run, climbing wall and boot camp challenge. Refreshments will also be available.

The event is the brainchild of Cirencester Rotary Club member Philip Reynolds. 

“We are grateful for the support of so many local clubs and fitness providers and are really looking forward to finally being able to host this fun, free event and encourage a healthier community,” he said.

Earlier this year the club enlisted the help of Cirencester College students to help design a logo for the event. 

Ellie, who studied textiles as one of her A-levels, entered the competition to test her creative abilities and expand her portfolio. 

After a week spent coming up with a few different ideas, Ellie created three logos using drawing software she has at home and then chose one of those to develop as her final design.

On finding out she had won the competition, Ellie said: “When I was told I had won, I didn’t really know what to say, I couldn’t believe it. I am proud of myself for giving it a go, this has given me more confidence in my own ability.”

Since winning the competition, Ellie has met with a representative from the Rotary Club to develop her design further. Her logo will be used during Activius and possibly for other events in the future.

Activius has been supported by Cirencester Town Council, Cirencester Rotary Club, Cirencester College, Cirencester Kingshill School and St James’s Place.
