It is sponsored by Thomas Bow City Asphalt in conjunction with NHS Rushcliffe Clinical Commissioning Group, aiming to promote health in the district.

Deputy leader of the council Debbie Mason said the event promises to be an action-packed afternoon full of fun activities with the chance to learn more about health, nutrition and wellbeing.

"Thanks to our wonderful sponsors who all locally are playing their part in the transformation of the town centre and the precinct where the event will take place."

Things on offer:

  • Blend your own nutritious smoothie on the smoothie bikes
  • Rowing machine challenge and health checks from Cotgrave Leisure Centre
  • Hula hooping with Project Hoop
  • Everyone Health advice on healthy lifestyles
  • Nutrition coach, cook and food writer Susan Hart with healthy eating advice and recipes

Both councils are encouraging event goers to walk, cycle or use public transport wherever possible when they attend.

John Allen, director of Thomas Bow City Asphalt said he is delighted to be sponsoring the event which will deliver a new focal point for the people of Cotgrave and surrounding areas.

"It is really important to us that we engage with the communities in which we work and promoting health, sport and wellbeing is particularly important to us, as we support many of the local sports clubs," he said.

"Our association with Sunday Funday will only build on the rapport we have built up with local people and businesses in the town whilst works take place on this stunning new precinct and we can’t wait to welcome the event."

Free parking is available at nearby Candleby Lane School from 12pm to 4.30pm.
