The HYPAC (Hartington Young Peoples Activity Club) group has 18 young people aged between 10 -16years from Hartington and district involved every Monday evening (5.30-7.30pm) in activities in the village hall or school playground.

We have reported on the purchase of portable floodlights; funded by Hartington Charities and Derbyshire Dales—these have proved invaluable in allowing the young people to access a range of activities. The key partners Derby County Football –Sport in the Community and Derbyshire Dales Sport Development unit have ensured a quality service before Christmas and will be involved again for the months leading up to Easter. In January and February we are able to access the support of Derbyshire Youth Service who will bring such activities as team building exercises, archery and a mobile climbing wall.

We also have a Sports Leaders UK-level 2 course, being organised alongside the programme which will be running in the summer-May, June, July. This course is nearly full- but if you are interested in being enrolled (you have to be 16yrs or older) please contact this website on info@hartingtonvillage.com
