Back in February we launched a survey to find out if the Medway sports services were #FitForPurpose, and it has been a major success!
As a result, the VCs for Kent, Greenwich and Christ Church have committed £50,000 investment in strengthening partnerships with sport and recreation facilities around Medway including gyms and swimming pools, and also subsiding external practitioners coming on campus to run sessions. GK Unions and the sports strategists from the universities will create an interactive map of Medway highlighting key features like sports centres and the deals available.
GK Unions will also be able to fund two minibuses to help student groups get around to training and games, which can also be utilised for Give It A Go.
The survey has uncovered some quick wins in terms of enhancements that can be made to the existing sports hall so recommendations will be put forward for that as well.
We’d like to thank everyone who took their time to give feedback, and it wouldn’t have been as big a success without the large sample size, as well as the campus-wide support.
We can’t wait to see the improvements that will be made, and hope you are as excited as us!
We will provide further updates on the progress, so keep an eye out for future announcements.
