The high winds at Lancashire Hill couldn’t keep residents away from the fun day on Saturday 17 August. Circus skills, a climbing wall, Boxercise taster sessions, face painting and a DJ were just a few of the free activities on offer.
The Mayor and Mayoress of Stockport officially opened the event where over 150 residents took part in the fun and games.
The community café provided home cooked healthy eating food. Heaton Norris photography club had their latest work on show. Hoffer fishing club, funded by You Say We Pay and headed up by Dave Greeves, were there to recruit new members.
Stockport Homes, who organised the event in partnership with Lancashire Hill Tenants’ and Residents’ Association, Neighbourhood Development Team, Life Leisure and Age UK, were on hand to give advice to customers affected by the recent changes to benefits. Advice included talking through the various options available from downsizing to applying for a mutual exchange.
Samantha Hill, Customer Involvement Manager said of the event: “There’s such a great community spirit at Lancashire Hill and the fun day certainly brings it out.”
