BROMSGROVE’S largest social housing provider, Bromsgrove District Housing Trust (bdht), has been hosting Family Fun Days throughout August, encouraging community spirit post lockdown.
The annual events, which were postponed last year as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, provide an opportunity for people to safely come together in their local community.
Ashlea Green, driving futures manager at bdht, said: “The Covid-19 pandemic has been incredibly difficult for many across Bromsgrove and we were keen to safely bring the local community back together to enjoy some fun and connect with others this summer.
“Following the success of previous years, we’re putting on four separate fun days across the district so everyone can get involved and enjoy the incredible atmosphere. All stalls run by bdht this year will be free of charge and we’d like to ask residents for feedback via a survey on their community, in exchange for tokens to use at the events.”
The next one will take place at Meadow Park Catshill on Wednesday, August 18, with one in Lyttleton Avenue Park, Charford, the following week (Wednesday, August 25).
Visitors will be able to enjoy an afternoon with a mix of entertainment at each event, including bouncy castles, a children’s entertainer, hair chalking, tombola and hook-a-duck, as well as information stands and demonstrations from local service providers.
