Community Sports Hub Navan

Do you live in Windtown/Blackcastle area, if so we want to hear from you!

Over the past year, Meath Local Sports Partnership through the Community Sports Hub has delivered a number of programmes to the children and adults living in your area. Those were run as short programmes and come and try events. We now want to ensure that activities such as those are delivered all year round in your area – what would that mean for you and your family???

It would mean that you & your family would have access to:

  • walking/jogging/running groups on your doorstep
  • sports clubs active in your area
  • activities delivered weekly/monthly in Blackwater park
  • activities delivered in local schools at evenings/weekends & mid-term breaks
  • activities to suit all ages & abilities

If you are interested and would like your say in helping this plan to become a reality – please come along to our public meeting Thursday 22nd November 2018 @ 7pm-8.30pm in Aura Leisure centre, Navan.

This is your opportunity to help shape the future of sport & physical activity in your local area!
