Connecting Communities

The event: Connecting Communities

This is an event specifically for groups, clubs and organisations within Bury to have a conversation on engaging and enabling communities to be active, move more and get involved in sport.

Bury Council, Bury VCFA and Bury VCFA Beacon Service want to hear from and support the people and communities that have been keeping Bury moving. We want to find out what you’ve been up to and how you’ve adapted, and how you’re feeling looking to the year ahead.

We will be joined by The Sports Marketing Network, 10GM and GreaterSport who have been supporting us to bring the conversation to the community.
