Community Event At Meldon Fields A Success

Linden Homes held a community event at its Meldon Fields development in Okehampton to help its residents find out about the range of activities available in the town to children, young people and adults.

Okehampton boasts a high number of sports and recreation clubs including basketball, badminton, dance, football, fencing, gymnastics, trampolining, bowls, pilates, volleyball, walking, cycling, archery, squash, walks, unicycling, art, sewing, horseriding, ballet, chess and yoga – no name a few!

Brian Deacon, sales and marketing director for Linden Homes said: “We are very committed to ensuring our residents feel settled in their new homes and we thought it would be a good idea to hold an event where everyone can meet their neighbours and find out more about the local clubs and activities in the town.

“We had a number of our residents join us and meet Stuart from the charity OCRA, the Okehampton Community Recreation Association, who was on hand to talk through what Okehampton has to offer.”

Stuart Lord, ORCA manager said: “The community event enabled us to talk to the new residents and find out what sort of activities they were interested in. We’re so lucky to have such a wide variety of clubs in Okehampton and it was great to meet some new faces and to tell them about local opportunities and our forthcoming sports and holiday events.”

OCRA is a charity that aims to maintain and develop sporting and recreational opportunities and facilities for Okehampton and the surrounding area. The charity has organised ‘Okehampton Sports and Fitness 2014,’ which is the Devon Sports and Fitness Festival that will run from Saturday 5th to Sunday 13th July.
