Heanor fun day proves to be popular

Published on Tuesday 20 August 2019

A family fun day in Heanor proved to be popular with the local community, and raised more than £900 for charity.

Around 700 people and families attended the event, which was organised by the Heanor and Loscoe Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team and brought together many different local groups and businesses.

Our officers were joined by Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service, ambulance crews and Police and Crime Commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa, who were on hand to meet with people and talk to them about the work they do, while there were more than 30 different stalls, with organisations ranging from crafts to cakes, baby groups to photography.

As well as a bouncy castle and other activities for the kids, there was also entertainment from Miranda School Dance, Performing Arts Dance, Burnette Karate Academy, local singer Bria Buxton, Aldercar Boxing club, Full Power Fitness, Derby County Trust and a steel band

A total of £990 was raised for three local charities. Stepping Stones (Elderly care), Blend (young children support) and Salcare (domestic abuse services) will each receive £330 as a result of the event.

Inspector Dave Parker, who is in charge of policing in the Amber Valley, said: “It was great to see the community coming together with our neighbourhood policing teams, local Councillors, volunteers and our police cadets, to get involved and support the fun day which, despite the threat of heavy winds and rain, was a great success.

“The aim of the event was to help build community cohesion and enhance engagement with our local residents. The whole community pulled together to put this event on, giving either their time or resources to help plan or take part on the day, and I would like to thank everyone who took part.”

The event took place on Sunday 11 August at the Wilmot Centre and Heanor Town FC.
