Leisure Live – Hersham Green – 9th July
Leisure Live – Hersham Green – 9th July
We’re immensely proud that Leisure Live, now in its 6th year, will be hosted on Hersham Green for the first time!
It aims to introduce residents and visitors to a variety of activities available in Elmbridge including local arts, culture and sports.
This year, there will be music, dancing and singing on stage with talented local musicians, singers and groups and Hersham Village Market will be offering an array of local delicious produce to taste and buy.
With more than 50 stands this year, Leisure Live will be packing in more fun than ever. With so much on offer what will you choose to do on the day?
Cllr Janet Turner, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture said:
“Leisure Live has become Elmbridge’s flagship leisure event where everybody can have a taste of the sports and leisure activities available to the local community. Many people attended the event last year and had a fantastic time. We are expecting even more visitors this year as we have an even wider range of activities for them to try. Why don’t you make it a day to remember for the whole family? Come along and discover something new on the day”
Most of the activities on the day will be free of charge but donations can be made to CHEER (Concern and Help for East Elmbridge Retired) and Elmbridge Community Link, the 2 charities supported by the Mayor of Elmbridge for 2016-2017.
Who will be there?
We asked some of the local participants to give us a sneak preview of what they will be offering – keep an eye out for them on the day!
We are excited to take our small team from Better Body Pilates down to Leisure Live to share some fun activities – come along to take part in our Balance Beam Challenge, book yourself in for a FREE Postural Analysis or try out our top 5 Pilates exercises to help your back.
Come along and say “hello” and pick up a free gift. See you there!
ECL are joint Mayor of Elmbridge Charity of the Year with Cheer.
The charities will have a joint stall at Leisure Live where you can learn about their work in our community. There will be an opportunity to win a Food Hamper (kindly donated by Hersham Village Market) and also, for the younger ones, a collection of toys if the right number of items in a jar on display are guessed correctly.
6th year of Leisure Live – 1st year in Hersham and therefore 1st time for Hersham in Bloom to be taking part. We will be displaying some of the photographs taken by residents of the country garden flowers on the Barley Mow roundabout, together with some taken by ourselves of barrels and troughs filled recently by the Hersham in Bloom team. There’ll be a couple of competitions for children to take part in, also a “feel what’s in the bag” game for everyone which concentrates on all things to do with gardening !! We will also be displaying the charming Millennium water-colour picture featuring 15 well-known Hersham scenes, which was produced by local artist Sue Hazeldine and copies will be on sale at a very modest cost. We will also be promoting our annual Hersham Honours Heroes concert which takes place this year on Saturday 23 July at 2.30pm in Hersham Memorial Gardens.
Zone In Yoga is delighted to be promoting yoga at Leisure Live this year. Come and visit the stand to learn more about yoga and classes in and around Hersham and why not join Hannah for some free taster sessions which will be running throughout the day.
