Also present at the signing was Paula Ferrer, who chairs the local office of sport.

The Formentera Image and Sound Archive will complement €18,000 in assistance from local government by providing logistical and material support to help archive, preserve and disseminate videos, photos and other graphics of historical interest, while distinct arms of the Consell will pitch in with logistical support for programming.

Between September and Christmas 2021, Sociedad Deportiva Formentera will make a documentary about the club’s history and host an array of events including tributes to the club’s former presidents, players and workers; a keynote friendly match; an exhibition; a series of talks and round-tables unpacking the history of football on the island; kids’ programming; a women’s football fixture and, a central part of the anniversary celebration, a commemorative party.

New defibrillators at sports facilities and Casa del Poble de la Mola

foto 2021 desfibril ladorsThe Formentera Department of Sport has launched an effort to give clubs and athletes access to training and install new defibrillators in sports facilities on the island. Defibrillators have also been installed in local seniors’ clubs, the first at Casa del Poble de la Mola. FDS chair Paula Ferrer said the initiative was about “making sport safer and building awareness among athletes, clubs and fans about the importance of safeguards and responsible conduct”.

This July new defibrillators have been installed at the Nautical Sports Centre (Centre d’Esports Nàutics de Formentera, CENF), tennis and paddle tennis courts and the Antoni Blanc Sports Centre. In addition, defibrillators at municipal facilities like the football pitch and swimming pool have been upgraded, and a new device will soon be installed in the Marc Ferrer Secondary School gym.

Last Saturday, athletes, club members and Consell staff took part in a new training session (the first happened in May) to learn how to use semi-automatic defibrillators. The programme was led by Emergency Staff.

Defibrillators in old persons’ clubs
By request, a defibrillator was also installed in Casa del Poble de la Mola and staff there were trained in emergency response. Chief of the seniors department, Ana Juan, said local government was committed to making all of Formentera’s elderly clubs heart-healthy spaces with defibrillators.

With basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation and automated external defibrillators, non-health workers can offer early and vital assistance in cases of cardiorespiratory arrest.

Sant Francesc skate park opens tomorrow

foto 2021 parc patinatge AThe Consell de Formentera is pleased to report that the skate and fitness park on the Sant Francesc ring road will open to the public tomorrow at 8.00pm. Top-ranking local official Alejandra Ferrer was joined this morning by vice-president and seniors councillor Ana Juan; councillor of youth Vanessa Parellada; infrastructure coordinator Xicu Ribas; Casal de Joves director Carlos Calzado and representatives of local seniors clubs on a visit to the park and tour of the facilities.

The €482,723 park sits on a 2,727-m2 lot and has assorted outdoor fitness structures and three skating circuits including a skating area, a “street” park and a “bowl”. There is also a wellness circuit for the elderly, landscaping and recreational areas.

Grand opening tomorrow
For World Skateboarding Day this week, the Casal de Joves has scheduled a skateboard-themed evening tomorrow from 8.00pm.

Youth chief Vanessa Parellada shared her satisfaction at being able to preside over the park’s opening — “scores of local youth have pressed for this for some time now”, she affirmed. The councillor pointed out that young people were a key part of the park’s design, offering feedback to ensure the new construction fit their needs.

Features
The 255-m2 skating area is obstacle-free and hemmed in by a long bench which doubles as seating for park users and their companions.

The 238-m2 “street” park features hand-polished concrete and characteristic obstacles like ramps, benches, platforms, handrails and ledges, often imitating street furniture found in parks and plazas.

The park’s most eye-catching feature is its 617-m2 “bowl”. Cut into the ground-level upper platform, it is a pool-shaped hole with depths of -3.75m, -2m, -2.2m and -2.5m and radii of 2.4m, 2.8m, 3m, 3.3m and 2.4m. Surrounding it are landscaped green spaces, and the days ahead will see shaded areas, benches and a walking route incorporated as well.

Heart-healthy circuit for seniors
The 285-m2 old people’s fitness circuit and exercise machines will soon include a rest area.
