Portsmouth event shows the fun side of being active

Have your say

A new event in Portsmouth aimed at getting the nation active is calling for local activity groups to show off their skills and attract new members.

The Thrive Summer Series is a free one-day family event and nationwide tour, wanting to show retail park shoppers the fun side of being active this summer.

Ocean Retail Park in Burrfields Road, Copnor, has asked all fitness instructors, dance teachers and martial arts gurus to come along with their group on Saturday, August 29 from 11am to 4pm and give a demonstration, before encouraging spectators to give it a go themselves.

Slots to showcase a group’s skills will be free and a stand will also be provided to display promotional material and to speak to visitors about signing up.

Anyone who wants to get involved can call 020 7221 7883 or email thecrownestate@kallaway.com
