Mell Square supports the Nation’s Biggest Sports Day with a special Mini Mells

We’re helping to inspire the nation to be more active by bringing its free kids club – Mini Mells – back as part of the Nation’s Biggest Sports Day on Saturday 24th August.

Partnering with local sports club, The Bugs Group, we’ll be hosting fun and energetic fitness sessions completely free of charge. Taking place outdoors in the centre of Mell Square, The Bugs Group will be running a 45 minute football class at 12pm, followed by a 45 minute dance class at 1pm.

Both the Footiebugs and Dancebugs sessions are aimed at children between the ages of 3 and 12, with parents and guardians encouraged to book their child’s place through Eventbrite. All participants will receive a goodie bag, with 100 up for grabs on the day.

Rob Hemus, asset director at IM Properties, owners of Mell Square said: “We are really excited to be able to host Mini Mells on the Nation’s Biggest Sports Day. This is enabling us to join a nationwide community dedicated to getting everyone moving, particularly children, so it’s fantastic to have The Bugs Group onboard.

“Mell Square is host to a number of sports and outdoor retailers, from Cotswold Outdoors to Mountain Warehouse. So, whether you’re thinking of planning a camping trip or going on a hike, there’s a great variety of stores to choose from. With the arrival of énergie Fitness earlier in the year too, it’s great to be encouraging more wellbeing and fitness in the town centre with Mini Mells”.

Lisa Applebee, bugs group general manager, said: “We are always keen to be involved in local community events and we are delighted to be involved in Mini Mells for a second year. With Footiebugs and Dancebugs both on the agenda, we’re sure these enjoyable and engaging classes will get children moving, and hopefully encourage them to take up exercise on a more frequent basis”.
