The Friends of St. George’s Park will be holding a Community Fun day in St. George’s Park again this year. The free event is on between 10.00am-3.00pm, with various exciting activities and performances, suitable for all the family. Svartland Living History Society will be recreating the lifestyle of Vikings and Anglo-Saxon people of the 10th Century. Their camp will feature period-style tents and they will be demonstrating a variety of authentic crafts, skills, games and pastimes.
There will be a motorcycle, trikes and scooter display by members of ‘Charlie’s Pride’ who will also be raising funds for Cords 4 Life. Other local charities will be selling everything from bric-a-brac to toys, clothes and plants, with all proceeds going to charitable causes. Younger visitors can enjoy free face painting, free bouncy castles, balloon sculpting and various crafts activities to get involved with.
As part of ‘Real Nappy Week’ our event will host the ‘Real Nappy Picnic’ which has been organised by Wyre Forest District Council. Real nappies will be on show and there will be a changing demonstration, a competition to win a set of real nappies and a world record nappy changing attempt at 11.00am.
As usual, there will be food and refreshments available with a B-B-Q provided by local Scouts. St. George’s Church will also be open where you will find displays from local artists and homemade refreshments.
John Stevenson, Chairman of Friends of St. George’s Park said:
“This will be the fourth year we have held a community fun day in the park. The previous three years events have been very successful and well attended. We have a lot to live up to but already this year’s event is looking like it will our biggest and best so far.”
Joe Scully, Parks Manager at Wyre Forest District Council said:
“This event will provide an excellent opportunity to get the family together, in the fresh air, whilst also celebrating our Patron Saint, St. George. The friends of St. George’s Park and Wyre Forest District Council continue to work together to look after this park and events like this showcase how valuable our green, open spaces are.”
