A Look Back at Summer 2023

September 21, 2023

Wow, we had an absolutely jam-packed summer this year! Though the weather often didn’t play ball, we did manage to fit in lots of activities for everyone in the community. Here’s our look back at summer 2023.

HAF Sessions With Move More

Summer 2023

We joined forces with the wonderful Move More to put on two sessions for local children. Up to 20 children attended each day and they got to try their hands at archery, football, tennis, and crafts as well as getting a lunch bag full of goodies.

Lunch and activities at the Community Rest Garden

Summer 2023

Thirty local people of all ages worked up an appetite doing some gardening and making a bird feeder before sitting down to a well-deserved picnic lunch.

Inclusive cycling sessions with Goals Beyond Grass

summer 2023

We partnered with the fabulous Goals Beyond Grass to deliver three inclusive cycling sessions at the Saracens FC ground. 40-60 children and parents attended and there were a range of bikes that were adapted for children with disabilities. One of the children told us, “Can we have the bikes every week? I love them!”

Community trips

200 local people hopped on coaches with us as we ventured to the Bournemouth Air Festival, Weston Super Mare, and Symonds Yat.

Park consultation event

Summer 2023

Along with Cheltenham Borough Council and Cheltenham Borough Homes, we held a consultation event where we asked local people for their ideas on how to improve the St Peter’s Square play park. 20 people attended and shared their idea over a pizza lunch.

A big thank you to our partners…
