The Buzz

Welcome to The Buzz!

We have relaunched The Buzz and will be sharing NEW videos throughout April and May 2021!

We will put the new videos up from the week on this website every Friday.

We also have a Facebook Group where we share the videos first each day Monday – Friday. If you have a Facebook Profile you can join the group: www.facebook.com/groups/hellothebuzz

The videos have ideas for activities that you can do at home.

There are already 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!
