The sun was shining on Grenfell Park this Easter Weekend as Maidenhead Bridge Rotary took over the town centre park to host their annual Easter Family Fun Day.
Now in it’s 11th year, over 800 people enjoyed the free event helping the Rotarians to raise more than £1,800 which will be donated to Daisy’s Dream, a Twyford based charity that support children and families affected by bereavement. The club also raised money for Foodshare by holding a special hamper raffle, won by Sue Ingram.
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.re
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 enjoying the many treats on offer.
A first this year was a new feature, pat a Pekingese, which say lots of children petting these adorable miniature dogs and learning more about pet welfare. Although when special guest, Festival Fox, made an appearance, the small dogs weren’t the biggest fans!
For the second year running we were joined by MooMusic who put on several singalong play sessions that had everyone, old and young, joining in.
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!”
