Family Fun: Move, Eat, Play!
Family Fun: Move, Eat, Play is a transferrable event applicable to many organisations in the Holme Wood area. The first ever Family Fun: Move, Eat Play event was run with St Christopher’s Family Centre, based at St Christopher’s Church, in the heart of the Holme Wood Community.
It invites all families to participate in slightly different and unique types of exercise, including: archery, dance, judo, tai chi and active play, showcasing another side of physical activity. The activity sessions are short and of low intensity to ensure anyone and everyone within the family can participate.
In addition, local organisations with current physical activity provision are encouraged to display leaflets and information so that families can be signposted to existing activity sessions and engage with what is already being provided for the community. As well as putting on a tasty spread of food for lunch too!
Overall, it aims to open up people’s eyes to alternative forms of physical activity which they may be able to engage with to increase their health. And, alongside this, inspire people to think about their physical activity levels and potentially change some habits by looking into what’s already going on in Holme Wood and get involved!
Our first ever ‘Move, Eat, Play’ session ran in April 2019 and we had 45 individuals come along which comprised 14 different families. It was a great success and we hope to continue to work with St Christopher’s Family Centre, and other community organisations situated in Holme Wood, to increase their family physical activity provision in the future.
