Give it a Go October News

1108 Participants this October

What a great snapshot of October’s Give It A Go activities programme and thank you to everyone involved!

In October we delivered a fantastic 92 different activities ranging from social sport sessions in squash, basketball and table tennis, to society led events including yoga and sew your own tote bag, and we even squeezed in a trip to the haunted Alnwick Castle and ghoulish Gardens for Halloween!

We saw an incredible 1108 of you join in with activities and 95% of you rated these as good or amazing! Your top activities for October were learn to skate with the Ice Hockey Club, salsa with the Salsa Society, and the Top of the Monument Tour!

And don’t just take our word for it - this is what you had to say…

“Give it a Go is excellent opportunity to try out new things for free and then decide if you want to become a member of the society/club or not.”

 “Thoroughly enjoyed the Top of the Monument tour – I’ve lived in the city since I was a boy and always fancied this but never had the opportunity to do so.”

We have more exciting activities planned this month and we’d love to see you there! Get involved at
