The sun was shining, the bouncy castle in prime place, stallholders ready to welcome families and the clues to the treasure hunt laid out round Grenfell Park. The 5th Annual Easter Family Fun Day had arrived!
This year children enjoyed the many activities on offer including bouncing like bunnies on the bouncy castle, having their faces painted, playing skittles and trying their luck at the coconut shye. Of course the main attraction was hunting around the park following clues to answer the Easter-Themed quiz so they could be rewarded with chocolates.
Once again the event was a huge hit with local families and a great success, with more than 900 people joining in the fun, the most to ever attend.
Sima’s Action Kids ran a 30 minute active movement and song session which saw children jump around to some great music, as well as the Easter Rabbit joining in with sleeping bunnies!
Event Organiser Adam Hunter, commented “For the fifth year running we have had a great day with excellent support from the local community. We’re thrilled with the number of people who came to enjoy this superb park in the centre of town, and join in the fun”.
The following companies and people kindly donated to the event, both in the form of eggs and their time on the day, without them we would not have been able to put on this free community event: The Louis Baylis (Maidenhead Advertiser) Charitable Trust, The Shanly Foundation, The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, Mars, Sima's Action Kids, Bill Traylen, Steph James, Ultra Quick Hire Ltd and Maidenhead Rotaract Club. Your contribution was very much appreciated by our club and all the local families who came to enjoy the day.
