Community fun day for Falinge residents

Date published: 10 June 2008

A day of activities will take place at Hebron Pentecostal Church, Falinge Road, a week on Wednesday (18 June).

The community fun day will run from 12pm to 6pm and activities will include a road safety simulator, games of 'Kickpitch' football, crafts and a toddler Surestart area. The fire service will also be attendance to offer advice to residents.

In addition to these activities, there will be a range of organisations on hand to offer free advice and support on a range of subjects including health and housing.

The Kingsway Partnership is joining forces with RoFTRA, Employment Links Partnership (ELP) and Job Centre Plus (JCP) to host the event and employment and training advice will be available from members of each of these teams to any residents looking to get into work.

Jackie Robinson, Community Youth Worker from RoFTRA said: “This is a chance for local people to find out about local services, jobs and training opportunities in a fun and informal environment. We’re being supported by a number of community organisations and we’re glad to be able to engage with the Kingsway Recruitment Team to the benefit of local people.”

Helen Darwent from the Kingsway Recruitment Team, which is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund, added: “We hope lots of people will come along and talk to us. This is a chance for us to meet more people from Falinge and discuss Kingsway opportunities with them. Helping Falinge residents’ access jobs on the site is a key priority for us.”
