Fathers event in Durham

Published: 4 July 2007

Children North East Fathers Plus in partnership with Locomotion, Sure Start County Durham
and the North East Museums Hub will be holding an event called Celebration 2007: Fatherhood Past and Present, on October 13 at The National Railway Museum at Shildon, County Durham.

Proposed activities this year include music, drama, balloon workshops, acro-balance and circus skills, video bubble, heritage, arts and crafts, story tellers and much, much more. The event will provide an opportunity to showcase all the great things that dads and father figures bring to the lives of children.

The event will provide services such as schools, family learning and children’s centres a ‘hook’ to help them engage effectively with men in their locality in line with national policy requirements. More details on how to showcase your agency’s work can be obtained from the Including Men website.
