Last Saturday (1st July) Bristol Rovers Community Trust and Avon & Somerset Police hosted the 2023 Lockleaze Community Cup at Lockleaze Sports Centre.
Filton Avenue Primary School, Meadowbrook Primary School and Charborough Road Primary School took part in the annual School Tournament during the morning sessions, which was followed by a friendly match between Avon & Somerset Police and Bristol Rovers Community Trust, which included a selection of Premier League Kicks participants.
Rick Woodland from Avon & Somerset Police said “Another fantastic display of partnership working between A&S Police and BRCT, putting on an incredible free community event, with a real family feel by the reintroduction of the Primary Schools Cup, alongside the longstanding adults Community Cup. A great success again with many bridges built within the local schools and community, showing the importance of hard work, team work, inclusion and respect.”
Will Dixon, Inclusion Lead at Bristol Rovers Community Trust said “At Bristol Rovers Community Trust, we believe in the power of inclusivity to bring communities together. The Lockleaze Community Cup 2023 showcased the true spirit of unity and teamwork, creating lasting memories for all participants and producing a sense of belonging within our diverse society.”
The event has grown from strength to strength each year, creating a real family festival environment for the whole community. Bristol Rovers Community Trust and Avon & Somerset Police would like to thank all of the schools, pupils, teachers and families for coming along to support the event, and we already can't wait to do it all again in 2024!
