Leadership course shows the way

Have your say

A NEW Leadership Course has proved such a hit that organisers are promising to make it the first in a series of sessions for local people to learn life skills like sports coaching, leading and demonstrating.

The not-for-profit Community Sports Trust, which runs Derbyshire Village Games (DVG), is now looking for other communities to host courses.

Hayley Lever, Director of the Trust, said: “We are offering people a chance to step onto the leadership pathway, right on their doorstep. The course can be hosted by sports clubs, community associations, youth clubs, Guides/Scouts or a Parish Council. All we need is a hall, and some enthusiastic locals!”

Chris Burns, DVG Coach and Volunteer Officer, led the two evening sessions with 20 people from Chinley and the surrounding area attending.
