Free Summer Holiday Fun Day!

30 August 2018

Greenstead Fun Day

Colchester Borough Homes' will be hosting a free fun day for all the family to enjoy as part of its 'Make a Difference Day' (MAD Day) programme, on Thursday 30 August 2018.

It will be held on Magnolia Fields in Greenstead between 11am and 2pm and there is a whole host of exciting activities planned. These include inflatables, face painting, craft tables, soft play, stilt walkers and a juggler.

Colchester United's football in the community team will also be on hand, so any keen footballers can brush up on their football skills. Essex Fire and Rescue Service will be bringing along a fire engine and there will be a smoothie bike and a book and slipper exchange running throughout the afternoon.

Free water and fruit will be available on the day and the children of CBH tenants will be able to get a voucher to enjoy a barbeque free of charge.

Make a Difference Days bring together Colchester Borough Homes (CBH) staff, volunteers, residents, local organisations and community groups, who work in partnership to complete activities that will benefit the local area.

Gareth Mitchell, Chief Executive of Colchester Borough Homes, said: "This is set to be an excellent event for everyone to enjoy. Families with children who are off for the school holidays will be able to come along and get involved in some exciting, creative activities.

"The MAD day programme has been a real success and this event promises to bring the local community together in the same way. I would encourage Greenstead residents to head down and join in on the day."

The CBH team will be available throughout the event in a Make a Difference Day branded gazebo, to answer any questions you might have.
