Bookings open for Get Doncaster Moving Networking Day - Friday 16th June at Hexthorpe Park, 10:00am - 3:00pm.
Parks and green spaces are highly valued across Doncaster and play a significant role in supporting residents to be active. Guests will not only learn more about Doncaster Future Parks (including seeing some of the changes implemented in action), but will see the huge potential for the GDM network to activate and maximise opportunities within parks and green spaces.
There will be many opportunities to network throughout the day, which includes lunch and refreshments (facilities will be provided on site). There will be opportunities to participate in several activities across the day, which include:
- Petanque - Learn to play Petanque on the newly installed dedicated pitch at Hexthorpe Park - the only one within South Yorkshire.
- Hexthorpe Park Tour - As one of the 15 Doncaster Future Parks sites, this guided tour will give an overview of what changes are being made in both Hexthorpe Park and within other green spaces across Doncaster.
- Pickleball - Learn how to play Pickleball, one of the world's fastest growing racquet sports, on the dedicated court.
- Horticulture activity - Contribute to the regeneration of the historic Dell with the The Conservative Volunteers.
- Interactive Trail - Take part in a new interactive experience, finding hidden clues across the park.
In the booking form there is the ability to put these activities in the order of your preference.
During the last Network Meeting in March, and in the follow up feedback form, we gauged interest in this idea and the majority of those who responded said they would be interested in this. We understand that it is a bigger time commitment than our usual meetings and have planned the day to ensure that this is a worthwhile and valuable opportunity to not only learn more about Doncaster Future Parks, but also have time to build and develop relationships, share information and identify ways to collaborate across the network.
If you would like to join us, please complete the booking form, which is open until Wednesday 31st May here: Get Doncaster Moving Networking Day Booking Form
