King's Park Moving Together
King’s Park Moving Together (KPMT) is a community project supporting the residents of the King’s Park ward (including Kingsmead and Clapton Park Estates) to be more physically active.
Funded by Sport England and managed by London Borough of Hackney, KMPT works with local partners on the ground including Hackney Marsh Partnership to deliver a range of services.
Through forging links with community partners, the project provides different opportunities aimed at supporting people to feel the benefits of being physically active in their everyday lives, ensuring long-lasting change for individuals and the community for years to come.
Who are your community engagement officers?
Ayan and Bella are the Community Engagement Team, based at Kingsmead Kabin. They work for HMP on the King’s Park Moving Together project and are available for drop in sessions on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please pop in for a cuppa and a chat anytime on those days or alternatively email or call and we will get back to you.
Bella is a boater with strong local community connections in the King’s Park Ward. She has been working on the KPMT project since 2019 and values the need to reach those who have been overlooked and need tailored support.. Bella is a regular user of Hackney Marshes and Daubeney Fields, and loves to walk in local nature as well as dance to keep her mind and body healthy.
Ayan has lived in Kingsmead Estate for almost 10 years now. She is an active member of the community. You will often see her using Daubney Fields for exercise, play or picnics with her two young children. She found yoga through the pop up session with King’s Park Moving Together. This has opened her to start meditation at the London Buddhist Centre, which is free for anyone and also Youtube has plenty of videos to kickstart your journey to better health and mindfulness.
