Snakes alive! Reptiles entertain at the Summer Roadshow at Hoyles Park, Bury.

219 adults and 277 children flocked to Hoyles Park in Bury for the first in a series of family friendly information sessions taking place during the school holidays across the borough.

Each event includes free entertainment for children and useful information stalls for tenants and residents living in the homes and communities that Six Town Housing manage on behalf of Bury Council.

Crowds flock to Hoyles Park in Bury for Six Town Housing's Summer Roadshow

Children enjoyed free face-painting, a bouncy castle, coconut shy, reptile handling and lots of games and competitions at the Hoyles Park event on Tuesday 24th July. Adults had the opportunity to report repairs, take part in a condensation and damp workshop, access digital training, find out about available employment support and much more. A number of Six Town Housing’s contractors and partners also brought games and spoke to residents, including Greater Manchester Police, SURE Group, Connolly and BAAS.

Sharon McCambridge, Chief Executive of Six Town Housing, said, “The Summer Roadshow provides a fun afternoon out which also gives us the opportunity to talk to tenants about what matters to them and promote the various free services they can access.”
