What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The following four objectives: • organise a series of events over the summer that will allow all in our community to come together and as a result to strengthen and improve the social, emotional, physical, and mental wellbeing of those taking part. • to give all cohorts in our village community an opportunity to engage in creative and/or physical activities but also to create occasions with an environment that enables all to engage in social interaction and to benefit from the well-being that that creates. • to support local businesses by increasing footfall in the village that will increase trade on the days the events take place and as a result increase awareness of what our local businesses provide to increase their trade in the longer term. • to raise funds that can be used to support developments at the Athletic Ground and if appropriate in the wider community.
