Youngsters in Lichfield are being given the chance to try out their skills on the badminton court – thanks to a new police backed initiative. Officers have teamed up with a children’s group to offer free badminton coaching and games to young people at  the Curborough Community Centre, in Reynolds Close. It’s aimed at encouraging youngsters to get more exercise, stay fit and meet one another in a safe and friendly atmosphere. Essential equipment such as racquets will be provided for young people taking part in the scheme. Lichfield neighbourhood officer, PCSO Maggie Griffiths, said: “Badminton is a fun and easy way to get plenty of exercise and I hope young people will take up the offer and come along and enjoy themselves.” The new club is being run by police in conjunction with the Adventure Playcare Association and will be staged over eight weeks starting on May 7. Anyone keen to take part, should call PCSO Maggie Griffiths on 07855 404 882 or 01543 417149 for more details.
