Not often used for events Creative Force took over the Pavilion Gardens on blowy September Sunday afternoon in 2016 for its first ‘Fit In Your Space’ event. Funded by Devonshire West Big Local, it was organised by Creative Force in partnership with Groundwork South.
This first event emphasised a healthy approach to using green spaces, in particular those spaces which are not so regularly used. Groundwork South gave people advice about indoor as well as outdoor healthier living and brought outdoor games such as a huge Jenga and outdoor draughts for people to try out.
Local artist Sheridan Quigley hosted visitors in the Creative Force marquee. Sport Eastbourne introduced people to traditional games, whilst Eastbourne Health Champions reminded people of the benefits of healthy living.
The final word goes to one of the participants when asked about what they enjoyed most: “All of it! We really enjoyed the community spirit”.
We did it all again in Summer 2017 at Tugwell Park, a local space in the Hampden Park locale. A lovely afternoon enjoying the sun with local people!
