Brooklands Park will hum with fun and free activities this summer as the much-loved spot is brought back to life.
From bug hotel making to flower printing, wood whittling and fairy fire lighting, the team at Food Pioneers will be welcoming families to take part in a series of different and engaging activities. Working with Worthing Borough Council, Food Pioneers will be inviting local families to share the unique open spaces at Brooklands Park on Wednesdays and Thursdays starting with a community picnic on July 25th from 10am til 1pm. There will also be egg and spoon races and cheese rolling.
Councillor Edward Crouch, Worthing Borough Council’s Executive Member for Digital & Environmental Services said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for people of all ages to come together, make some memories and make some friends.
“Food Pioneers are putting on a varied, educational and free programme for families with children to help make the most of one of our great outdoor spaces while taking advantage of the improving weather.
“As a Council we are committed to promoting projects that help people live healthier, happier lives.”
Food Pioneers are a neighbourhood based, non-profit food enterprise
They aim to build community through shared food experiences. As their name suggests, there will be events on at Brooklands based around cooking and eating together, like fireside snack making.
Director of Food Pioneers, Anne Thwaites said, “We are delighted to be able to offer exciting activities for families and children from the local area in a unique setting. Everyone at Food Pioneers is passionate about making a positive impact in our own community through bringing people together.”
In addition to the summer programme of free family friendly activities, a not for profit organisation CYCALL will be running free adapted cycling sessions at Brooklands Park on Saturday afternoons, starting on July 27th from 1pm to 4pm. CYCALL’s adapted cycles makes cycling accessible for disabled adults and children or anyone with a health issue.
