Bulwell community urged to get more active

Residents are invited to have a day of fun on the award-winning Bulwell Forest.

Taking place tomorrow the Bulwell Forest Action Group is hosting a Day of Action where there will be something for everyone and all activities are free .

The group has three community events on the day, culminating in the Café at the Crossroads, at Bulwell United Reformed Church at 5pm.

Matthew Cook and some of his friends will be talking about his experiences on a recent trip to Nicaragua.

People can meet up and build bridges of friendship in the community.

The day begins with a Community Coffee Morning at 10.30am hosted by the Big Friendly Garden.

The group has its annual meeting from noon-1pm.

Bill Blackamore, secretary of the Bulwell Forest Action Group, said: “Come and visit and find out about and share your views about Bulwell Health and Well Being Programme, the second Bulwell Arts Festival July 2015 and the We Love Bulwell town centre team that was established after a visit by Mary Portas.”

Mr Blackamore said that Ms Portas identified Bulwell as one of two places in Nottingham to be awarded a grant to enable residents working in partnership with community groups and organisations to develop historic markets and town centres.

Visitors to the event will also be inducted into how to use the outdoor gym and its 19 pieces of equipment that are available all day, every day.

People can also get a copy of the Autumn Health and Well Being Programme and have a go at bowls and boules.
