I was really pleased to see so many local people to turn out to support the Friends of Kingsdown Play Park in their efforts to raise money for new community play facilities at their May Day Fete. It was an honour to open the event.
The fete was organised to help raise money for a new play area in the village. The group are working with the Parish council to help raise money for the new facilities.
Plans for the new childrens play area were on display. Over a quarter of the money needed has already been raised, and all of the proceeds from the fete went towards the fund. Previous fundraising events have included a sponsored walk, quiz night and scarecrow trail.
The fete featured a range of traditional stalls including pony rides, cream teas and a coconut shy.
It was a fantastic afternoon of fun for all the family. Congratulations to the organisers. And thank you to everyone - from individuals to community groups and local businesses - who put some much time and effort into arranging the event.
