The opportunity for the whole family to learn and have fun at the same time in Ramsey was on 24 May at Ramsey Football Club, Cricket Field Lane, from 12 till 5pm
It was a fun packed afternoon with a range of activities focusing on learning and fun for the Ramsey community to enjoy.
There was six zones: arts, music, driving, technology, nature and sport where people can have a go at a variety of things including screen printing, decorate your own shirt or shopping bag, crafts, archery, beat the goalie and 5 a side football, downloading images and music on a hi tech techno bus, bird box making, nature trails and shire horses, marshal arts including yoga, tai chi and sword fighting. You can test your driving skills and knowledge and sign up for free advanced driving courses with RoSPA or learn to play the harmonica, and chords on the guitar and much, much more. There will also be a free prize draw where everyone who takes part in the activities will be entered to win either two £50 notes or £100.
People are also invited to come along and sell their wares or have a pitch at the car boot sale being held on St Georges Field next to the club with BBQ and bouncy castle. Pitches are only £2. For more information contact Pat on 01487 710822.
It will be a fantastic way to spend a Saturday afternoon, try lots of new things and get up to date information about the new Ramsey Residents Group, and Ramsey Learning Community, a group of volunteers who distribute information about courses and training locally.
Penny Litchfield, Ramsey Neighbourhood Manager said; “This is a great opportunity for the whole family to be involved and you will be spoilt for choice in the activities you can enjoy and take part in. These events provide something for all ages and have the added bonus of being fun.”
As part of Family Learning Week, In the morning Ramsey Community Information Centre is presenting an award to Ivan Gowler, Ramsey ‘Learner of the Year’. He attended training at the information centre which turned his life around. Ivan said; “The training has given me confidence and open up many opportunities for me”.
Huntingdonshire District Council’s community information centres’ manager, Julie Butcher, said “Everyone from the local area is welcome to come along, why not pop in while your shopping to help us celebrate this great achievement.”
The day is being run as the first event for the Ramsey Residents Association organised by Huntingdonshire District Council with support of the Ramsey Learning community.
The Ramsey Fun and Learning Day is a partnership project with support from Luminus, Muir Housing, Huntingdonshire Regional College and Abbey College as well as Huntingdonshire District Council, and the involvement of volunteers and residents from the Ramsey Learning Community and the Ramey Residents Group.
