Composed and written by the girls of 1st Medstead Guides and 2nd Four Marks and Medstead Brownies, the song is entitled ’Save our Sports’.
According to Gwen Clifford, unit leader Brownies and Guides Four Marks and Medstead, the girls have been working on the module ‘Girls Matter Hear Our Voice’ which is all about getting girls involved in the political process and democracy.
She said: “All of the Brownies and Guides are active sports participants in a range of clubs and value what is currently on offer at the sports xentre.
“They are fully aware of the new development, they know that it will be smaller than what we currently have and they think that it should be bigger and better and offer more sports opportunities for everyone in our community.
“They are also aware that there has been no substantive public consultation and they think they should have been consulted too. The song is their collective voice.
“It contains most of the sports they would like to have at the centre.”
And she added: “We undertook our own survey, they created posters and conducted personal interviews.”
Save Our Sports
We love our sport, we love to dance
Everybody needs a chance
Take part in sport, learn skills for life
Sport’s a way to be rid of strife
We love to run, we love to walk
Everyone likes to sit and talk
The baby crèche is so much fun
Sport’s accessible for everyone
Netball, football, hockey, rugby too
Squash and tennis, ping-pong, yoga all for you
Cycling, climbing, badminton and judo too
GREAT for the heart and GOOD for you
We love to swim, we love our gym
Everyone can learn to win
It’s taking part that’s all we need
Sport can help us ALL succeed
We love the spa, time to relax
Sauna, steam room, bubbly bath
Whatever sport it is your call
We want our centre to have it ALL
We have a voice, we love our sport
Want the best with choice of course
It makes you smart, it keeps you trim
SPORT FOR ALL ......its WIN, WIN, WIN
