An exciting new initiative launched today, ‘#WatfordTogether’, will see the town’s arts, entertainment, heritage and cultural organisations work together, and use their creative talents, to help people in the town through the coronavirus pandemic.
#WatfordTogether will get people creative, active or arty with a range of cultural activities, events and competitions, giving people plenty to do that will keep them both physically and mentally active as well as providing opportunities to connect with others who share similar interests and pastimes.
The full range of activities on offer can be found on the dedicated #WatfordTogether website – watfordtogether.co.uk and on Facebook (facebook.com/watfordtogetheruk) which will both be updated regularly with new ideas and things to do.
The website includes information on activities run by local people, listings for activities for children and adults from around the world, mental health support and an events calendar.
Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor said: “It’s fantastic that even during these very difficult times people in our town are able to pull together to support one another. It’s one of Watford’s strengths togetherness we all feel and the pride we have in our communities.
“I hope this new initiative will help raise people’s morale and keep our town together. I also want to thank the many different groups who have made this possible and who are supporting everyone in our community.
“Huge thank you to our partners who responded to the call: Watford FC, Watford Palace Theatre, Pump House Theatre, Rifco Theatre Company, Watford BID, Visit Watford and West Herts College”
