Icecream timeSaturday 25 May: Sportily community fun day

Big crowds turned out with the sun for the Sportily community fun day at Innsworth Community Junior School today.

“Fluff it. Duff it. Score it. Smash it. Whatever you do, just give it a go,” is the Sportily moto and people were living that out all over the field.

From axe throwing and sumo wrestling, to bouncy castles and rounders, there were loads of activities to try out. Families had to track down the volunteers wearing sparkly lanyards and speak to them about what they enjoyed in their role.

Volunteers handed out free cakes and drinks and a big football session happened at one end of the field.

Sportily works in 14 locations across the Diocese of Gloucester, with around 1,100 people taking part in their activities each week. Research shows that sports ministry can act as a context for faith exploration, discovery and worship and this is something that is growing locally.
