Delivering effective services, enterprising solutions and exemplary homes and communities.
On Saturday 11th August 2018 the Forest Gate PFI team held their resident community day in the grounds area of Forest Point. The event was fantastic and attended by many residents and their families. It was a mixture of young and old all getting together to celebrate a community event. The theme was "health and wellbeing" and the event gave all attendees access to external services, advice, fun activities and healthy food.
Those attending had access to a free health check which included weight, height, testing blood sugar levels and general advice on healthy living and eating.
DJ Kindle, who is Swan's very own Customer Services Officer Lorraine, provided a mixture of great music creating a lively feel with lots of dancing.
Atherton Leisure Centre provided a workout area for those
wanting to exercise and flex any muscles!
Beautiful Henna patterns were available to try and fantastic face painters gave children (and some adults!) lovely colourful designs.
A children's corner provided lots of activities including hoola hooping, arts and crafts, a free tombola, ribbon dancing, table top football and a giant connect 4.
Meditators from Brahma Kumaris gave guidance for those wanting to spin the 'wheel of life' and investigate their spiritual side whilst being given a guiding star.
Delicious healthy street food including chicken and
falafel wraps with lots of salad were cooked fresh onsite for all
to enjoy and to follow this, freshly cooked popcorn from an old
fashioned popcorn cart was available.
The whole day was fantastic, fun and enjoyable and Swan would like to thank staff, external partners and residents that helped organise this event. We would offer a special thanks to residents in the vicinity of the area who agreed to the event being held close to their homes.
