FROM THE EDITOR School pitches are good for all
INVESTMENT in sports facilities at city schools can make a big difference to the future wellbeing of our citizens.
I know how much effort schools put into encouraging young people to be more active and better facilities will help that mission.
Participation in sport and physical exercise can boost achievement, lead to better behaviour and improve confidence.
And obviously there are health benefits too.
The wellbeing of the wider community will also be lifted as the pitches are available for wider use outwith school hours. Graham Shields Editor
