Family Fun Day at the Eden Rural Foyer in Penrith

Eden Rural Foyer provides housing with support to young people between the age of 16~25. We offer young people a springboard into independent living, learning and work, using a holistic approach to meet their needs and aspirations. Eden Rural Foyer has been recognised nationally as a centre of excellence by the Foyer Federation, for its work with young people and the local community.

The foyer also houses a dynamic Community Hub open to the general public and offers I.T training for beginners and advance users,  a young parents group, meeting rooms and offices hire and many more to meet the greatest needs in our community.

On Friday 2nd September families from across Eden, came together at Eden Rural Foyer to join the fun and enjoy the following activities:

  • Children’s entertainment delivered by Silly Gilly
  • BBQ organised by Janey’s Mac
  • Face Painting
  • Messy Play
  • Cake decorating
  • Jewellery Making
  • Disco
  • And many more fun activities


What a great day!  It was fantastic to see all members of the local community including young people, children and families having fun. There were long queues at face painting and jewellery making stalls.

The event was kindly funded by: Cumbria Community Fundation, Greggs Bakery, Eden Rural Foyer, Impact Housing Association, Penrith Multicultural Group and Eden Young Parents.

We would like to thank and congratulate to everyone involved in the Fun Day.  It was another successful event and we would like to make the Family Fun Day a countywide event next year.
