Tuesday night saw the action come to Alexandra Park Sports Hub with our young athletes competing in the Scottish Athletics Superteams 3, Tuesday saw the 75m and Standing Long Jump. While we are unable to access to any Glasgow Life Athletic Facilities a huge thank you to Milnbank Housing Association and to John Gormlie of the Alexandra Park Sport Hub for their support, without this support we would be able to deliver physical activities that our community needs at this difficult time. Also HUGE THANK YOU to all the volunteers that made the event possible
