Local Activity Days
Throughout the year Holmewood & Heath Healthy Futures Group organise a series of activity days aimed at families and the community coming together. In 2017 we ran The Great Get Together in memory of Jo Cox MP in partnership with the Parish Council. We also ran a family fun day on Heath Park Field and a fantastic Xmas Family Party. 2018 promises more, bigger, better and more exciting. We are always looking for support so if you want to see these activities come and join out team.

Why Do Fun Days?
For many years at the height of the mining in this community there were carnivals, festivals and lots of community engagement. It created a sense of identity and feeling good about the area and your neighbours. We would like to reconnect the community by bringing them together more so activity days are very important.
Due to changes in how people work and social issues in the village it is very to become insular and lonely, not having a connection with those around you. We want to encourage the community to take part in our activity days as participants or volunteers. The benefits are it breaks down social isolation, it values the skills you have and it encourages you to build new friendship. Click on the link and let us know you want to get involved.
Our Plans For The Future
We want to run 3-4 community events each year, we also want them to grow and be more accessible to the wider community. Please give us your full support by getting involved.
