The South Leicestershire School Sports Partnership is passionate about children’s physical activity and well-being.

We work alongside 83 South Leicestershire schools and support education professionals in providing opportunities for all, ensuring well-being, physical activity, school sport and PE is at the heart of school life. SLSSP is passionate about developing inclusive provision to promote personal development and lifelong healthy behaviours.

We work closely alongside the 3 local authorities, Blaby District Council, Harborough District Council and Oadby & Wigston Borough Council

The Energise Green Space Treasure Hunt!

Click the images for more information!

   

Walk around the park to find 5 Energise Characters (Active Anita, Spike, Target Tom, Adventure Arif and Captain Combat).  Each character will have a series of letters underneath them, make a note of these letters and when you have found them all unscramble them to make two words.  The words form a password (all lower case and no gaps between them) used to unlock a certificate using the QR code poster.

The Energise Green Space Treasure Hunt will be running at Blaby Road Park, Brocks Hill Country Park and Willow Road Park. 

Please ensure you follow all government guidance and regulations relating to exercise, including:

  • Only going for exercise once a day
  • Exercise only as part of your household, support bubble or your childcare bubble (when care is being provided)
  • Stay local and do not travel to take part in treasure hunts outside of local area
  • If other people are also looking for/at clues, please keep your distance (at least 2m) and wait for them to finish and move on before approaching the clue.
  • Remember hands, face, space
