Coming soon – Tamworth Cycling Festival

Tamworth Cycling Festival

Make a note in your diaries: Saturday 30th June 2018

Cycling is good for your health

Following British successes in the sport, cycling is becoming one of the principal go-to leisure activities in the UK

Health & Well being programme

As part of our Health & Well being programme, we have cycling activities on Tuesdays & Thursdays at our Hub In the castle grounds, kindly sponsored by Tamworth Heat Treatment.

All members of the cycling group said they had benefited from the programme & asked us to consider holding a Festival to celebrate cycling as an activity.

Feedback from the group helped us to arrange events which makes the day entirely user driven.

Beginners to Experienced Riders – This is your Day

If you’re a beginner or an experienced rider this day is for you

Tombola – Can You Help

Community Together CIC – Tombola

Community Together CIC are a not for profit community interest company who provide a range of community activities that support people to Grow Well, Live Well and Age Well.  As a community organisation we are reliant on the generosity of people helping us raise funds to help us achieve our objectives.

Tombola Table

One of the ways we do this is through the Tombola Table at our central hub located in Tamworth Castle Grounds.

The table is an Aladdin’s cave of prizes, most of which are donated by our supporters.

 

Only 50p a ticket

For only 50p there’s a chance to win a nice prize & at the same time, contribute to the well-being of your neighbourhood.

Donations would really help us

As you can appreciate, there is a fairly rapid turnover of prizes, & we are always grateful for donations, either in cash to buy prizes or prizes themselves.When accepting donations, we are unable to accept any damaged, used items as prizes and appreciate any new or good condition prizes that will help us to generate funds to support the charitable work we do.

To donate:

Either call in with your donation at the Hub in Tamworth Castle Grounds, or you can contact us on 01827 59646 Ask for Lee, Steve, or Debbie

 

Cook Together, Eat Together

Cook Together – Eat Together

Commencing in March 2017 we are piloting a new activity in our Hub
Called “Cook Together, Eat Together”, it combines two of our key community objectives of “bringing people together” & “promoting healthy eating”. We plan to hold the activity between 4:00pm & 6:00 pm to allow families to attend.
We have a fully equipped domestic style kitchen in the hub, which allows us to replicate a small early evening meal, such as you would have at home.
Initially, we envisage a single course, but, with experience, we hope to develop the activity further

 

 

Befriending Lunch helps with social isolation

Befriending Lunch

With an ageing population, social isolation is becoming a UK wide issue.

Based on the latest Health & Well being data for Tamworth, the town has over 15,000 people aged 65 or over, of which over 3,500 are lone pensioners. Additionally, there are almost 7,000 income deprived pensioner households. Both the lone pensioner & income deprived groups are at high risk of social isolation.

In a bid to help the elderly Tamworth Community to overcome isolation, every Wednesday, during term time, we run a Befriending Lunch between 11:00 am & 2:00 pm at our Hub in the Castle grounds

At our befriending session, you can enjoy a cooked meal as well as social activities covering 41/2 Hours. You will find that these activities help to stimulate you & at the same time, give some respite to your carers.

We are also able to give support through telephone calls & home visits.

For more details, contact us on 01827 59646 ask for Debbie, Lee or Steve
