Our Community Development Worker David received funding to start a Walking Football Project within Whitburn. Working in partnership with West Lothian Youth Foundation we launched WEEKLY Walking Football Sessions at Whitburn Community Centre every Thursday 10.30 am to 11.30 am. Participants are welcome to stay afterwards for a chat, beverages and most importantly biscuits. ALL COMPLETELY FREE❗❗
Walking football is aimed at keeping people aged 50+ or anyone who due to a lack of mobility or for other reasons are not able to play the traditional game.
If you’re interested in coming along or want to find out more please get in touch with David at firstname.lastname@example.org, or pop into the CDT office at 61 West Main Street.
