Burton families looking for something to do this Sunday (8 May) are welcome to join in the fun at a popular  community facility.

A host of free activities will be taking place Sunday between 11am and 4pm thanks to the team at the Burton  Albion Community Trust.

The Hub is run by the Burton Albion Community Trust – a team of people dedicated to promoting positive



nd since its development 12 months ago the charity has gone from strength to strength.

Outreach projects, sessions at schools and targeted activities are all run by the Hub and attracting hundreds of people every week.

Matt Hancock, Community Manager at the Trust, said: “There will be a range of activities that children and young people can get involved in this Sunday.

“We are offering positive, diversionary activities to get people more involved in their local communities.

“And it’s not only children and young people we want to engage with, we want to see their parents and families getting involved too. Everyone is welcome.”

The Trust works in close partnership with Staffordshire Police to provide support and positive activities for young people – diverting them away from crime and anti-social behaviour.

Chief Inspector Steve Maskrey, local policing commander, said: “I am fully supportive of the Trust’s work in the local community.

“This is a fantastic resource for families and I’d encourage everyone to get involved.

“Sunday’s timetable of activities is a prime example of the great work the Trust does to positively promote our diverse communities.”
