Local Dad’s Group is a huge success!

by Debbie Manning | Sep 16, 2015

A weekly group for dads and kids has been a huge success promoting a healthier, more active lifestyle among fathers and young children. Dads at Leo FunZone

The group was organised by health visitors from Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust (CCS) in May this year.

Danielle Black, health visitor said: “Our Dads group was created to support the development of children both emotionally and physically as well has helping to reduce obesity and enhance relationships between fathers and their children.

“The group was established by the health needs of the local community being identified by the health visiting team. As part of a building community capacity programme we are now in the process of handing the group back to the community, which means the Dads will now run the group themselves, with help from us if they need this.” 

The sessions are held at the Leo’s Funzone at One Leisure, in Huntingdon, every Wednesday, from 10am to 11.30am. 

Feedback from the group has been really positive with one of the dads saying: “I truly believe that nobody will feel that their morning has been wasted, it’s great to meet other dads."

The entry is free to children under 5 although they will need to have a One Card (membership card) which will be issued free.

There is no need to book but if you need more information you can get in touch via the group’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/groups/dadshuntingdon or via email at cambridgeshiredadsgroup@gmail.com
