Opportunities  in Moray

Milne’s Sports Club

Active Schools has been developing disability sport in Moray for the last 3 years. This has resulted in a sports club that runs in Fochabers at Milne’s High School on Monday evenings. During the sessions the participants are introduced to a wide range of sports including orienteering, athletics, golf a variety of ball games, tennis and boccia (a sport similar to bowls and petanque but designed to be all inclusive). A couple of times a year the members go out on social events such as 10 pin bowling. Please see timetable below for more details.
