Recognition: the Mytime Active team celebrate their award

Charity StreetGames has just confirmed that Mytime Active has been awarded “StreetMark” certification for the sports opportunities it provides for disadvantaged people aged between 16 and 25.

Formed in 2004, Mytime Active manages leisure services for Bromley Council.

It also manages 19 pay-and-play golf courses around the country and delivers health interventions in conjunction with the NHS in some areas.

Project leader Keith Sykes said the organisation was “thrilled” to have been awarded the StreetMark quality stamp.

“It really reinforces the great work that goes on within our communities, which has been growing over the last six years,“ he said.

“As a social enterprise we use sport and physical activity as a tool to engage, develop and ultimately change people’s lives for the better.

“We are really pleased to have met the requirements of high-quality community sport.”

StreetGames chief executive Jane Ashworth said she believed Mytime Active’s programmes would add to the London 2012 legacy work being done across the UK.
