Getting out and getting active at Drapers Mills school this Summer

Food and Fun on offer at Drapers Mills school

What an amazing summer so far, full of activities for getting fit and getting fed!

We make so many excuses to stay indoors even in the best of weather, but is it time for us to make a change?

More than a third of our local community are classed as ‘inactive’ – doing less than 30 minutes of activity a day, so maybe it’s time for us all to try something different.

Your Leisure Community Team, East Kent Housing and Thanet District Council have all teamed up to create the ‘Fit and Fed’ project. As part of the project, the following activities are all based at Drapers Mills Primary Academy, Margate this summer.

‘Our Kitchen’

Every Mon, Wed & Fri 6pm-8pm

Sharon Goodyer’s Summer Kitchen

The inspiring ‘Our Kitchen’ through their pop-up restaurant are offering fresh, nutritious food, drink and desserts along with a variety of entertainment, plus community services with anything from live music to magicians.

‘Family Rounders’

Wednesdays 6pm-8pm

Family Rounders is a really easy and fun way to get the entire family out and active this summer. These sessions are open to all no matter what your ability or age. It is a great opportunity for children and adults to play as part of a team.
