The sun was shining on what has to be one of the hottest Easters we can recall! The bouncy slide in prime place, stallholders ready to welcome families and the clues to the treasure hunt laid out round Grenfell Park. The 10th Annual Easter Family Fun Day, organised by Maidenhead Bridge Rotary Club, had arrived after a 2-year enforced break due to lock-downs this April.
This year children enjoyed the many activities on offer including bouncing like bunnies on the inflatable slide, having their faces painted, playing bar 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.
This is the 10th year the club has run the event and it gets bigger and better each year, and this year was no different, proving to be a huge hit with local families and a great success, with more than 1000 people joining in the fun, the most to ever attend.
Families sent time playing and enjoying the sunshine, whilst decorating bunny masks, seeing how many marbles they could get inside a flowerpot under timed conditions and of course sampling the lovely ice cream and other food on offer.
For the first time we were joined by MooMusic who put on several singalong play sessions that had everyone, old and young, joining in.
Over £1700 was raised at the event which will be donated to local good causes to support community projects, just one of the aims of the day and Maidenhead Bridge Rotary Club.
Event Organiser Adam Hunter, commented “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. Here’s to doing it all again next year!”
