North West Migrants Forum is hosting a free-of-charge family fun day on Saturday 24 July 2021 in Brooke Park, with a wide range of activities to suit all ages.
The theme of the fun day is ‘Communities uniting against Racism’ and it will include an intercultural BBQ, a group walk around the park, hair braiding, football for both children and adults, face painting, drumming lessons, Zumba, and more.
Lilian Seenoi Barr, Programme Director for the North West Migrants Forum, said;
“We are so pleased to be preparing for the return of our family fun day in Brooke Park this summer. We really missed hosting the event last year and we are excited about all the fun activities we have lined up.
Our family fun day is a great opportunity for those in attendance to meet new people from different backgrounds and gain some insight into the work of the North West Migrants Forum. It also gives people and communities the chance to send a strong message that there is no place for racism within our city and district.
We would like to reassure anyone who is interested in coming along that the safety of attendees is one of our top priorities. To help with this, we will have a team of COVID compliance officers, led by William Scampton from Praetorian Event Safety Management Services, to ensure that everyone remains safe and is following the correct COVID protocol while they are having fun.
If you or anyone you know would like to attend the fun day, we would love to see you there – everyone is welcome! However, we do ask that you register your attendance in advance for COVID planning and catering purposes. You can do so by following this registration link: FAMILY FUN DAY 2021
We would also like to give a special thank you to two of our funders, the National Lottery Community Fund and The Northern Ireland Housing Executive, who enable us to put on events such as this one for the local community.
Full event details will be posted on our website and on our social media platforms but if you do have any questions or concerns ahead of the fun day, please get in touch with us. We look forward to seeing you.”
Registration for attending the fun day will close at 4pm on 19 July 2021.
