The Buzz

Welcome to The Buzz!

Here you will find videos with activities that you can do at home.

There are over 100 different activities here with things like art, exercise, cooking and learning.

The videos have been made by really good community enterprises that have worked with Community Catalysts. They are all experienced in running inclusive and accessible, fun sessions!

We also have a Facebook Group where we post the videos. If you have a Facebook Profile you can join the group: www.facebook.com/groups/hellothebuzz

We are taking a short break and will be back with more videos in December.

Please enjoy all of these activity ideas until then!
