A SOCIAL housing provider in Bromsgrove is holding a series of family fun days in August to encourage community spirit post lockdown.

The annual events, held by Bromsgrove District Housing Trust (bdht) were postponed last year due to the Covid pandemic.

The family fun days are set to be held every Wednesday in August, with the first event held on August 4 at Burcot Lane Car Park, then August 11 at Shawfield; August 18 at Meadow Park, Catshill and August 25 at Lyttleton Avenue Park.

Residents will be able to enjoy an afternoon of entertainment 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.

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."

Bdht will be asking residents for feedback via a survey about their community in exchange for tokens to use at the events.

Ashlea added: “We really value the support from local businesses and individuals who have played a part in our previous events.

"After a challenging period for all, we’re expecting our 2021 family fun days to have a fantastic turn out so it’s a great opportunity for businesses to reach out to the local community and share the services that they offer.”

Any businesses wanting to get involved in the family fun days are asked to contact Ashlea Green at bdht on ashlea.green@bdht.co.uk, or call 0800 0850 160.
