Popular local club, St Albans Judo Club has achieved Clubmark status from Sport England due to their positive work locally. The award recognises clubs which have developed high quality and welcoming environments for young people. It aims to encourage clubs to foster sporting talent and leadership development to support the future sporting infrastructure in England.
It again helps to highlight why the County Council must maintain facilities like this in Hertfordshire. Local Liberal Democrat County Councillor Allan Siao Ming Witherick has helped to support the club through a grant from his locality budget and continues to fight to ensure that any redevelopment on the site retains both the Judo club and the Pioneer youth club as valuable local facilities.
If you wish to join or would like further information visit the club’s website: www.stalbansjudo.org.uk, e-mail [email protected], ring the dojo during any weekday evening on 01727 854411, or speak to Ian Wasey during the day on 07985 051034.Leave a comment
