Community Safety Family Fun Days

Community Safety Family Fun Days

Throughout the February school holidays, Bassetlaw District Council’s Community Safety Team will be holding a series of Family Fun Day events across the district.

Children of all ages can enjoy outdoor sports activities including KMX karting, soft archery, NERF wars and challenge games provided by Sport4Kids; as well as joining dance and games workshops provided by Lil Me Entertainment.

There will also be a variety of other family friendly activities and entertainment including circus acts, glitter face paint, mascots, photo booths and much more.

The four events taking place across Bassetlaw are on:

  • Monday 13th February at Mary Street Play Area, Rhodesia. 12pm - 3pm
  • Tuesday 14th February at Carlton-in-Lindrick Youth Centre. 12pm - 3pm
  • Thursday 16th February at Kings Park, Retford. 12pm - 3pm
  • Friday 17th February at The Canch, Worksop. 12pm - 3pm


Cllr Julie Leigh, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods at Bassetlaw District Council, said; “These events will be a great afternoon out for all the family and we hope that people can come along and enjoy the activities that are on offer.

“As part of these events, we also want to speak with people in our communities and learn how we can help to make them feel safer and reduce anti-social behaviour. It will give residents the opportunity to meet their local ASB Officer and tell them about any concerns they have in their neighbourhoods.”

As part of these engagement events, which have been funded by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner as part of the Safer4All funding, the Community Safety Team would like to learn more about how safe children and adults feel in their communities and their experiences with anti-social behaviour.

Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner Caroline Henry said: “I’m proud to provide funding support for this Community Safety Family Fun Day, which will be a great day out for families that will not only build community spirit but also help the Community Safety team find out more about people’s feelings of safety.

“Engagement events like this are vital in understanding the community’s needs so that Bassetlaw District Council, Nottinghamshire Police and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner can work together to take action as part of our shared goal to make Notts safe.”

Parents who take part in this short survey could win a £100 supermarket voucher, which will be drawn at the end of each event. Children will also receive incentives to provide feedback.

A variety of stalls will be in attendance at each event to offer residents information and resources on other services in their community.
