Halloween Fair Hirst Park



Hirst Park Winter Challenges

With winter nights creeping in we understand that negativity can creep in just the same. We forget there are so many positives.

So our winter challenge #1 is to share the positivity. Push those negative thoughts aside. Share all things positive!!!

Challenge #2 is take and share photos. We love seeing your photos and we would love to share more on the Hirst Park Memories Website.

Struggling with low mood? Challenge yourself to get out for a walk, take a photo and share to the group.

Challenge yourself to share some positivity!
