Aquatic cen­tre on dad day quest

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Front Page -

Hor­sham Aquatic Cen­tre is ask­ing chil­dren to share why they think their dad or fa­ther fig­ure is awe­some.

Nom­i­na­tions for the 2019 YMCA Com­mu­nity Fa­ther of the Year opened at the start of July and close on Au­gust 3.

Cen­tre man­ager Sam Win­ter said whether a dad gave the best cud­dles, told the best jokes or gave good life ad­vice, Hor­sham Aquatic Cen­tre wanted to know about it.

She said the award was a chance for fam­i­lies and com­mu­ni­ties to cel­e­brate the job dads and fa­ther fig­ures did.

“This year we’re on the search for the top dad in the area,” she said.

“We know strong fa­thers and fa­ther fig­ures play an im­por­tant role in the lives of the young peo­ple close to them, sup­port­ing their well­be­ing.

“Every year the YMCA Com­mu­nity Fa­ther of the Year cel­e­brates the awe­some job these males do and gives them the recog­ni­tion they de­serve.

“It’s an amaz­ing op­por­tu­nity for kids of any age to share how in­cred­i­ble they think their dad or a fa­ther fig­ure such as a grandpa, un­cle, coach or teacher, is.” Win­ners of the YMCA Com­mu­nity Fa­ther of the Year will be nom­i­nated for Vic­to­rian Fa­ther of the Year, an honorary award de­liv­ered in part­ner­ship with YMCA and The Fa­ther’s Day Coun­cil.

Chil­dren can nom­i­nate their dad or fa­ther fig­ure for Com­mu­nity Fa­ther of the Year by writ­ing and draw­ing about them.

YMCA has en­cour­aged par­ents to help young chil­dren with their nom­i­na­tions.

Nom­i­na­tion forms are avail­able at Hor­sham Aquatic Cen­tre.
