Youth Visionz Promotions and Soul Food Promotions have joined forces to host a Community Fun Day this weekend, at the Parson’s Road playground and park on Saturday.

The event, to be held from 2pm to 7pm, is part of the anti-violence and Live in Peace (LIP) movement, “to simply create an atmosphere and provide the space for families, neighbours, locals, and others, to come together to enjoy some fun and games”.

Desmond Crockwell of Visionz and Lynwood ‘Brotha Richie’ Richardson of Soul Food Promotion, are both community advocates, who have contributed “their time and resources to promote events or initiatives, to impact neighbourhoods, and various demographics of people in a positive, meaningful way”.

“It is our faith that the more positive vibes we push out there in the atmosphere, and galvanize others to do the same, it will counteract the negativity that is plaguing our island,” said Mr Richardson.

“We will continue to push and sacrifice to see more things of this nature take place island wide. Our goal is to do more community events in the west end of the island as well,” he added.

“We are grassroots based. We are not charities. Our business is about positively impacting our nation with authentic movements. We have had to learn to do much with limited resources, but we are encouraged because we recognize that our work is not in vain.”

He also expressed their gratitude for those who have stepped up to volunteer, or help with the fun day”, including the various media platforms that continue “to show their support by allowing us to tell our stories, and keep people informed of our endeavours”.

Snacks and refreshments will be on sale, with music and sound by Trinity Sound and GoodTyme Entertainment, featuring a number of guest DJs. There will also be martial arts demonstrations by Tabata-Ha Shotokan Karate-Do by Sensei Charles Butterfield and Sensi Frank Burgess of Fudoshin Ninjitsu Bermuda.
