Moving Together launch and fun-day

There will be free face painting at the Moving Together fun day

Chances to win a fitbit, free ice lollies, and loads of free activities to keep the family entertained all day. That’s what’s happening this Saturday 13 July at the Moving Together launch and funday at Daubeney Fields from 12noon-4pm. 

The weather is set to be sizzling and residents are being invited to bring along picnics and have some fun in the sun. Everything will be free on the day and will include a bouncy castle, smoothie bike, free wellbeing massages, dancing, steel pans, a skateboarding demo, a visit from the Hackney Playbus and more! 

As part of the event the Mayor will also be opening the amazing new playground in Daubeney Fields, with a special ribbon cutting ceremony. 

Moving Together is a new Hackney Council project funded by Sports England, and is working with people who live in the King’s Park ward, which includes the Kingsmead and Clapton Park Estates, to identify the things that would help local residents to be active and socially connected.

Over the next few years, Moving Together will be working with the community to help decide how best to invest money from Sport England to support local people to feel the benefits of being active in their everyday lives and ensuring long lasting change that will benefit the community in years to come.

We are really excited to be launching Moving Together with this amazing activity packed funday on Daubeney Fields! The team has already been doing some initial work with residents, to see how local people in Kings Park want to invest money from Sports England to support their community to be more active and more socially connected. This event is the first of many that will help bring the community together and have residents voices at the heart of positive changes for the local area. Don’t miss out, bring your picnic and come along.
