Community Hertsmere’s Activities and Events for 2017

Thank you for all your support in 2016, Community Hertsmere are planning on providing lots of activities and events for all ages throughout this year.  Our aim is to improve the lives of the community by creating new friendships, giving people the opportunity to experience and visit new surroundings and relieve stress from day to day life.  We always try to keep costs to a minimum.

So far there are six events that have been planned with lots more in the pipeline.  We are keen to hear new ideas from the local community.

The first trip that has been organised is to Legoland Windsor on the 10th April.  Everyone is welcome to experience a fun filled day out at a fraction of the price.  There are plenty of rides and attractions to choose from.

In June there is a coach trip to Goodwood Family Race Day. This will be on Sunday 11th June.  There are plenty of things to do and see. With a chance to “meet the racehorse”, walk the course, trips to the race start as well as a behind-the-scenes tour of the racecourse.

On Friday 7th July there is a day out planned to look around Cambridge.  There are over 30 colleges to explore and to learn about the architecture and culture.  Places must be booked in advanced directly with the college.  You can go punting on the River Cam, enjoy a picnic in the park, join a walking tour of the city or explore further afield from the seat of a bicycle following the excellent network of cycle paths in and around the city.

Over the course of the Summer holidays there shall be lots of seaside trips available.  On Friday 28th July there is a day planned to Margate. A chance to relax and unwind and treat the children in the popular Dreamland amusement park.

On Friday 11th August we are going to Thorpe Park. This will be a popular event so places must be booked early to avoid disappointment.  There are over 30 rides, attractions and live events for all ages.  Over 3’s will get FREE entry and only be charged for the coach seat.

The popular Bournemouth Air Show has also been planned.  This is a FREE event so you only pay for the coach seat. This will be on Friday 1st September.  In recent years there have been displays by the Red Arrows, Black Cat Helicopters, Swiss Super Puma, The Blades, Strikemaster and plenty more.

Over the next few weeks our staff and volunteers will be working on planning lots more activities and events for later on in year.
