GOOD NEWS - December 2nd
The start of a new month sees many local groups and organisations issue updated lists of activities, here's a few we'd like to share ...
The Fleetwood Wellbeing Way has hung over 20 wooden Christmas trees along their Esplanade route. Each one has a QR code, linked to activities like 'what's your Elf name?; Christmas songs to help you feel festive; Christmas yoga poses for the family and more.
Check out the Wellbeing Way from the Log Cabin along to Fleetwood Ferry.
You can also find links to the new Finding Fleetwood Festive trail.
This is the first in a series of interactive trails with stories, games and more brought to life with interactive augmented reality as you tour around Fleetwood.
If you are looking to travel a little further afield check out the December listing of events from Wyre Council's The Great Outdoors.
There's health walks, beach cleans, gardening, conservation days, workshops and activities for residents to connect with nature and the environment, and support their health and wellbeing.
We also have printed copies of the listing availble from our Information Centre at Affinity.
Rick Clement of Fleetwood Town Community Trust and his colleagues across the Fylde Coast continue to offer great support to veterans.
Over the next month they are hosting coffee mornings, football sessions, Walk & Talks and more - we've posted a link to the list of activities on our website here.
Fleetwood Town Community Trust is also looking at opportunities for females to engage with sports and fitness.
Girls and young adults aged 7-18 and their families are invited to contribute to a survey that will help the Trust offer a range of activities in the future
There's lots of research going on in and around Fleetwood at the moment to support projects and funding bids for the future.
Alejandro from Lancaster University met with residents this week to hear their thoughts on what makes a healthier community.
He's back with us in the Information Centre at Affinity on Wednesday 8th December between 12noon and 2pm if you'd like to call in and have a chat. Before that, the Mapping Memories volunteers are joining us on Tuesday 7th December, also 12 noon to 2pm, to collect stories of Fleetwood Past & Present, building up the digital memory map.
If you haven't checked out the map lately, it's well worth a look - click here
There are now two FREE exhibits on display in our Information Centre ...
You can discover more about Marine Life in The Bay with a presentation by scientist-in-residence for The Mount, Jess Symons and Trevor Lund, and The Wonder Room is a collection of found objects and curiosities put together by local creative Tina Dempsey. Please call in to see the exhibits and of course find out more about the many groups, activities and events in and around Fleetwood.
Congratulations to the residents of Lighthouse View, Fleetwood.
In only a few months since the Regenda Homes development opened they've already created a strong community spirit and have raised £1,700 for Brian House Children's Hospice, making a presentation to the charity this week.
Lastly, we've launched our Advent Calendar this week and each day across our social media and website will be spotlighting a different group or venue in the Fleetwood doing amazing work to support local residents - please check out the Calendar when you can.
Until the next time, take care.
