Babies, toddlers, teenagers, parents and grandparents are all invited to join in the fun at a free Community Fun Day in Beverley on Monday August 1.
The event promises to be double the fun, combining activities hosted by East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s children centres in Coltman Avenue, and a ‘Have a Field Day’ event on the neighbouring Burden Road park.
The children’s centres will open their doors from 11am to 1pm to provide activities for families with young children. Activities will include bingo, competitions, assault and obstacle courses, face painting and a range of soft play and craft activities.
Information will be available on the day about a range of issues, with a number of local organisations taking part.
On the same day, the ‘Have a Field Day’ event, hosted by the council’s sports, play and arts service, will take place at the Burden Road play area from 11am to 3pm. It is part of celebration event for all play areas which have Queen Elizabeth 11 protected status.
The aim of the event is to raise awareness of the playing field as a safe quality place for families to enjoy through a range of free taster activities involving local partners, community groups and volunteers. Activities will include archery, circus skills, multi-sports and a mobile skate park.
Everyone is welcome to attend the community events, but all children under eight must be accompanied by an adult.
