Heatham House will be bringing local people of all ages together when it opens its doors for its annual community day on July 7, 2012.
Livestock is back for a second year with a huge line up of shows, activities and rides for all the family. As well as the usual Livestock activities this year’s event will feature something for everyone including the original Batmobile and a jam making workshop. Young people will be able to enter the football competition, have a go on the rides and get involved in many fun activities. Stealing the show will be live art performances, an outdoor stage, magicians and break dance for all the family to enjoy.
A key aim of the Livestock event will be getting the whole community together to promote a positive image for the young of the borough. There will also be an important fundraising effort on the day for the Connor Whipp Foundation, a charity appeal to pay for his cancer treatment in the US.
Cllr Christine Percival, Strategic Cabinet Member for Education, Youth and Children’s Services said:
“For the second year running Heatham House will open its doors for this community event. There’s certain to be something for everyone with lots on show and plenty to get involved with, no matter what your age. This is a great way to get everyone together for a good cause. It’s a bargain price and I encourage everyone to come along.”
The Livestock event runs from 11am – 8pm. Entrance will cost £1 with ‘pay as you go activities’. For more information call Richmond Council on 08456 122 660.
