Peter Dias, Chairman of the Frinton Beach Hut Association, said: “We have a very active association which is always seeking to enhance people’s days out in Frinton. This is the first Frinton Family Fun Day and is a celebration of what a trip to the seaside means and with the help of all our partners, Tendring District Council and Essex Child and Family Wellbeing Service we hope as many people as possible will enjoy the day out.”
Cllr Lynda McWilliams, Tendring District Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Education, welcomed the event. She said: “This Summer fun event is a great way to engage with local residents, especially younger members of our community, about keeping healthy and staying safe,” she added.
“If people can learn about these things while having fun, then it is much more likely to embed and keep future generations living longer. This is all part of our Livewell initiative, encouraging people to live healthier lives.”
Richard Comerford, Managing Director of the Essex Child and Family Wellbeing Service, said: “We’re pleased to be supporting this great event to give families easy access to information about our service and how they can get involved at our Family Hubs to provide support services to other families like them.
