The Flintshire Chronicle featured an article on my project before the event took place. Click here to read it in full.
My 5-Aside Football Tournament on Sunday 18th August was a great success! About 35 young people came down to a football pitch in Buckley town centre to take part in the event. We were really pleased with the turnout and very happy to see the whole community getting involved in our Fixers project.
Young people attending the event really enjoyed themselves and one of our local Councillors turned up to support us as well, saying:
'What a great day for all the young people to come together and show the community their involvement with other age groups in the area.'

'It's been a great day, and I have really enjoyed taking part in the football match. i was even given a medal for my efforts. I think it brought everyone together and showed the community that we can be involved and help make a difference.'
'I think it was a brilliant day, it brought us all together and we worked really well as a team. It also helped us to get involved in speaking to the community and trying to get others involved. It was good that we had the football stadium, because if it wasn't there, then there would of been nothing else for our age group.'
'Really good to see youngsters be given the opportunity to play and see the girls playing too. It's a fantastic way to show the community how young people come together to join in and can make a difference.'
'It's nice to have something to do and get involved with. I've enjoyed playing and interacting with other young people.'
