Summer is here!

This summer has been a Summer of Fun in our two local parks,

Eastwood Park, Hasland and Barnes Park, Grassmoor

Grassland Hasmoor - Big Local, in conjunction with Rykneld Homes; Grassmoor, Hasland and Winsick Parish Council and Chesterfield Borough Council, has been organising activities for hundreds of youngsters for the past 6 weeks. 

Funding from the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner and the Governments Holiday Activity Fund, through Rural Action Derbyshire, plus food from Fare Share has meant we have been able to offer FREE make you own picnic plus a wide variety of FREE activities to all youngsters who have come along.

Samba Sports has been the main provider with daily continuous activity for all ages plus Joker Entertainment one day a week in each park offering a wide variety of Circus Skills workshops, which the youngsters have really enjoyed. 

Junction Arts have attended offering craft sessions; a climbing wall allowed youngsters to be brave and test their head for heights; White Post Petting Zoo allowed youngsters to get up and close to numerous creepy crawlies as well as more cuddly furry critters! 

200 FREE Tee Shirts have been distributed to attendees celebrating 2021 as the Summer of Fun.

The whole project has been organised and run by volunteers from the Grassland Hasmoor - Big Local Youth and Children's Support Group...a fantastic group of local people who have made it their 'job' this summer to bring a smile to hundreds of faces...including their own!

Almost 700 volunteer’s hours were recorded for the wonderful teams of volunteers who facilitated at the sessions but this does not include the huge number of hours spent in collecting foods; additional shopping; and the massive administration work needed to conform to the requirements of the funding awarded.

Many thanks to the many who assisted IMG 20210803 1256305 rewind. It has been an amazing summer with both parks full of active and participating youngsters supported by their wider families who have stayed all day on their deck chairs and picnic rugs.
