The Community is, in essence, everyone. Thus this element of the sportKeighley partnership is, in effect, an umbrella for all the others, and underlines the inclusive nature of the initiative.
There are some key groups working with particular sections of the community, however, and sport and physical activity is an integral part of the way communities with very little in common can be brought together in an effective and fulfilling way.

Sport England Consultancy
sportK met last week with consultants PMP to let them know about the sportK network and activities.
PMP have been appointed by Sport England to consult with some existing and emerging Community Sport Networks across several Sport England Regions.
The purpose of this work is to determine how the networks were established and inter-relationships between the key partners, what works well, what lessons have been learnt and what could potentially work well in the future. It is felt that this independent evaluation work will be of value in helping to develop the partnership and make it more effective, as well as learning from and informing examples of good practice for PMPs work from across other Regions.
They are doing similar work across five other Sport England Regions so there are a range of examples from which to draw out this information and from which others can learn from. From experience elsewhere, the work provides an opportunity to learn how individual partners feel the partnership is working to reinforce current systems or provide suggestions for the future.
The work will involve further face to face consultation with the key partners involved with Sport Keighley, through a series of meetings, together with follow up telephone consultations with those who also feel they have information to contribute. For SportK, this will initially involve PMP contacting some of the main stakeholders, with an interview proforma detailing the sort of questions they will be asking.
Daniel Isherwood from PMP will also attend the next sportK meeting on 1st March and can make arrangements to chat then too.
Daniel can be contacted by phone on 01606 49582 or 07717 545627 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Play Audits for Keighley
Mark Gladwin, Play Services Officer from Bradford Council, will be at the next sportK meeting to brief people
(1) about the Big Lottery Fund children’s play programme and
(2) about the information being sought for play audit work in the wards of Keighley East and Keighley Central.
This is especially relevant in the light of the Caseyâ€™s Corner situation and the ongoing study into facilities in Keighley in general being conducted by KKP.
