Ringwood

Family Fun Day 2017

What is it?

Ringwood Family Fun Day is a completely free event, for the whole community. It’s organised by local Churches, and has been supported by the Town Council, and local businesses and organisations. In both 2014 and 2015 it was attended by about 5000 people and run by about 200 volunteers from local churches and 30 from Moorlands College. It's benefited local people by being an exciting opportunity for everyone in the community not only to come together, supporting and serving one another, but also for nearly 90 clubs, groups and businesses to promote their contribution to community life of Ringwood. In 2015 people enjoyed over 3000 burgers, 1000 cream teas, 2000 hot dogs, 3200 ice-creams and countless homemade cakes – all for free! Some children described the last event as the ‘best day we’ve ever had!’

In 2016 we ran a different project over a number of months called Love Ringwood which included a big community survey asking people ‘What hurts the most?’ and some follow up relevant talks and courses; a Clean for the Queen Project and a giant Street Party with the local council.

Family Fun Day 2017

Our 2017 Ringwood Family Fun day will take place on Saturday 10th June at Carvers Recreation Ground. We anticipate over 5000 people attending. There will be family friendly activities and entertainment for all ages: including food, sports, crafts, live bands, animals and inflatables. Once again it will all be free!

What's on after the Funday?

A series of follow up events are happening after the 2017 event. For adults there are events focusing on the results of the 2016 'What hurts?' survey in order to provide real support for those who need it. For children, youth and families there are many groups meeting in the local area to support young people.
