Nottinghamshire Police is supporting Nottingham Forest's Community Trust scheme to help vulnerable children within the local community.

The day will be full of fun activities including football, tennis, foot-golf and fitness challenges in open spaces.

The programme will see sports sessions aimed at 8-16-year-olds, with the first on 11am-3pm Friday 3 July in Sycamore Park in St Anns.

Nottinghamshire Police's Youth Outreach Worker Romel Davis is working with the football club with the programme.

He said: "The aim is to get young people out of their homes as restrictions ease and get them involved in sport and fitness and have fun.

"We are really keen to have the most vulnerable and disadvantaged to take part too, so please do get in touch if you know anyone who might benefit from the sessions and we can reserve them a slot."

There will be more proposed locations over the next eight weeks including activities in Clifton Playing Fields, Ilkeston Recreation Ground, Stapleford, Sutton Lawn Recreation Ground, Sutton in Ashfield, Balderton Playing Fields, Newark, Broxtowe Country Park, The Canch in Worksop and Lenton Recreation Ground.
