Allocation of Dormant Account funding was secured through Meath LSP and Sport Ireland towards the development of a Community Sports Hub in Navan.
What is the community sports hub Navan?
Community Sports and Physical Activity Hub is a collection of progressive sports clubs and other local organisations that want to work together to improve sport offered in their local community.
It also aims to try and increase not just the activity levels of those within the hub area but also to provide more opportunities to be active and open pathways.
How the community sports hub Navan works?
The hub operates within the existing structures of the Meath LSP and provides information, support and advice on a wide range of sports and physical activities to make it easier for people in disadvantaged areas to get involved and engage in a more active and healthier lifestyle.
The hub is managed from the offices of Meath LSP based in Town Hall, Navan which acts as a central physical base for the programme.
3 hotspot areas have been identified in Navan for phase programme roll out—
- Blackwater Park
