Building Links across the Generations

Community Fun Day in Cam Woodfields on Thursday 28 May

Young and old are invited to come together and enjoy an afternoon of fun in the park during the May half-term holiday in the Woodfields area of Cam, Gloucestershire.

World Jungle is organising a free community fun-day event on Woodfield’s Park in Cam on Thursday 28 May from 1pm-4pm, which they hope will bring the whole community together and link a number of projects they have run over the past couple of years in the Cam Woodfields area for both children and older residents.

The Community Fun Day will include lots of free activities for the whole family to enjoy including face painting, circus skills, African drumming, arts & crafts and henna  hand art.  There will also be a ‘Bric n Brac’ stall run by members of World Jungle’s  ‘Past Times Café’, a friendship and activity group for older people that meets each week in Springfield’s Court.

World Jungle has been running projects for residents of Cam Woodfields over the past couple of years with funding from the People’s Health Trust.  These have included the ‘Past Times Café’ supporting older residents, together with ‘Bounce’, a personal development and challenge programme for children in partnership with Cam Woodfields Junior School.  Ben Ward from World Jungle says:

 “It is wonderful to be able to run an event that reaches across the generations, and will hopefully bring the whole community together to enjoy a fun afternoon on the park.

 Members of our ‘Past Times Café’ were keen to help raise funds to keep their group going by running a stall at the event.  It is also an excellent opportunity to bring all ages together, seeing older residents, children, families and young people enjoying the same event.”
