If your need some inspiration of things that are happening locally or places and services that you could make the most of then look no further. Here is a great list of some local to Barnstaple events that offer something for everyone.

Clear your mind – Charity

Being selfless is proven to improve happiness. Luckily there are some great charity events happening in Barnstaple. You get to have a great time out with family and friends knowing that needy North Devon people are benefitting:

Encore Concert at Christ Church – Get the best seats in town to this theatrical concert raising money for a truly wonderful local charity – Families in Grief

Paws on the Beach is having the dog event of the year. The k9 factor - family dog show and the Big Sit - Guinness world record attempt. There will even be doggy surfing so take the whole family out for a fun day out and raise vital funds for Dogs helping Kids

Blood donation sessions at Grosvenor Church Barnstaple. Giving your blood will save lives. There is no greater feeling than knowing you’re directly contributing to a poorly fellow human.

Take time for what's Important to YOU

If Easter took its toll on your waistline or in my case thigh line too – whoops. So if now you are in the mood to get in shape why not boost your mental and physical health with some a group fitness classes.
With classes happening all over Barnstaple both indoors and outdoors from trusted fitness expert Jon Barnett why not take 2016 to the next level.

Maybe you would rather start upping your fitness gently with ballroom dance lessons. Project Dance! Devon are running classes that suit all ages and ability and are dementia friendly so why not take an older friend/relative to help improve co-ordination, mobility and its guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

If you want to investigate some of the hidden nature in North Devon, try the summer walks with the Devon Wildlife Trust. Fresh air, beautiful scenery and those leg muscles will be building up too.

Lastly looking forward to the summer holidays there will be Sandy Soccer Summer Camps running on Croyde Beach. Get your kids running free in the fresh air whilst you enjoy the sand between your toes. Call and book your child’s place today.
