Clubs invited to sport conference

Sports clubs and organisations from across the High Peak are being invited to the borough’s first Club Conference to find out more about the support available to them.

High Peak Borough Council, Derbyshire Sport and High Peak School Sport Partnership are hosting the conference on September 30 from 6pm to 9pm at the University of Derby Dome, in Buxton.

The event gives clubs the opportunity to meet their local sport development officers and explore how they can help.

They can also participate in short workshops covering topics including top tips for writing funding applications, roles for volunteers, what’s on offer to support coaches and how to get the best out of Facebook.

The cost, £15 per club, includes entrance for up to three people and includes a buffet and drinks.

Bookings should be made by August 18 via the website
