lets get sporty

Let's Get Sporty are delighted to be able to be part of the Our Place Lochside and Lincluden Project. This is always something that we have been keen to be a part off as it has always been important to us, that sport and its incredible benefits are accessible for all. Our hopes for the project are that we are able to increase the levels of physical activity in Lochside and Lincluden, increase the number of young people gaining vocational experience.
