The County of Brant Creates a Recreation Lending Program and Online Activities
The County of Brant Recreation and Community Development Division is excited to offer a new program to our community to help support families and encourage physical activity during this time.
Starting April 29, 2020, the County will be making the following items available to residents of the County of Brant:
• Hula hoops
• Skipping ropes
• Sidewalk chalk
• Soccer balls
• Fitness equipment including 2, 3 and 5 lbs weights and Yoga Mats
• And a variety of other recreation and sports equipment
“We understand this is a difficult time for everyone. Our hope is that by providing additional resources to families for their children’s education and physical activity needs is one less thing parents will have to worry about,” said Lesley Head, Director of Recreation and Community Development. “Having the ability to access new pieces of equipment can provide children and families with new opportunities to explore, play and discover. Staff will provide information on ideas for use with the equipment you have requested. Learn new games, sports and activities as you stay safe and healthy in your home.”
Items may be requested per child/person. All items must be returned following the pandemic response currently in place.
If you are interested in the lending program, please visit www.brant.ca/RecAtHome for a full list of items currently available and email email@example.com outlining the items you would like. Staff will be in contact to confirm lending items and arrangements will be made to deliver the items, noting that physical distancing is required. Additional instructions for safe and proper use, along with programs are available on www.brant.ca/RecAtHome. Please understand that quantities are limited and items will be distributed in order of requests received.
We encourage the community to visit the new Rec At Home webpage (www.brant.ca/RecAtHome) for a full listing of family friendly physical activities. Staying active benefits our physical and mental health.
