Space is coming home to Newcastle
6 July 2018 Local News
It’s coming home, it’s coming…Space is coming home.
While the whole of Newcastle continues to bask in World Cup fever and back Gareth Southgate’s World Cup hopefuls in Russia, Staffordshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Ellis swapped a soccer ball for a basketball to officially launch the county-wide summer activities scheme.
Mr Ellis joined former Harlem Globetrotter Shawn Jamison and newly-installed Space Champion Olivia Hopwood at Stoke-on-Trent College, to publicise Space 2018, which kicks-off at the start of the school summer holidays at the end of July.
And this year the target is to attract 25,000 attendees across the area, with more than a 1000 activities planned.
Mr Ellis introduced the Space programme to bring together public, voluntary and private sector organisations to help nurture, support and guide Staffordshire youngsters.
The nine district and borough councils within the county have already signed up for Space 2018, with preparations underway behind the scenes to ensure the 8-17-year-olds of Staffordshire and Stoke have a summer of fun and enjoyment to look forward to.
The summer schedule has been mapped out, with a full list of activities available on the Space website (staffordshirespace.uk). Book now, to avoid disappointment.
