A Family Fun Day was held on Friday 24th August, hosted by members of St Mary's Church and held at the Youth & Community Centre. The afternoon was enjoyed by some 100 people of all ages — grandparents, parents and children alike.
On offer was a wide range of indoor activities including stone and face painting, biscuit decorating, electronic music creation, computer games, pool and table football, plus rug toys for the very little ones. Outside, youngsters enjoyed the activity play area, football and diablo.
To help fuel all the activities, a free supply of hotdogs, cake, tea, coffee and squash was very welcome!
Organisers and helpers were keen to thank Lucy Brackley for her posters, which helped to publicise the event.
