Fun Day Schedule
We can now announce our schedule for the Summer Fun Day on 31st July at Onchan Park (Oakdale Rd Rec) 11-5pm.
We have shared our story with Notts TV and BBC Radio Nottingham already and East Midlands Today will be covering our event on Sunday morning.
Michael Westwell will open the Summer Fun Day at 11am. There will be a display about the Invictus Games and he will be happy to answer your questions. He is a sporting role model that we can all look up to and his story of triumph over adversity is a theme that we want to replicate with Onchan Park.
Our raffle has some amazing prizes on offer: a meal for 2 at The Elwes Arms, an M&S Hamper, a Summer Hamper, a Soap and Glory gift bag, a lunch voucher for Wetherspoons, a Hairven morrocan oil treatment voucher, three-day gym passes, fruit and veg basket, gift vouchers, wine and chocolates. Tickets are available to buy from Jazz’s shop on Oakdale Road on Saturday. Or you can buy them at the Fun Day on Sunday.
There will be refreshments and toilet facilities so you can enjoy the whole day at the park with your family and friends. Have a go on one of the many traditional stalls – tombola, cake sale, water-to-wine stall, guessing games and much more.
The Royal British Legion will have a large stall and there will be vendor stalls to browse as well. Bouncy castles and extra games will be near to the kids’ playground.
The police are bringing a patrol car and a PCSO will be giving out freebies.
A fire engine will be arriving at 1pm and will park on Oakdale Road. You could collect a smoke detector or climb inside the cab. The unit may have to respond to a call out, so don’t be late!
Local theatre group Bear Left Theatre Co. will be showing a preview of their Robin Hood show for us at 1:30pm. Their main performance is at the College Street Centre – Studio Theatre on Thursday 25th August to Saturday 27th August. You can buy tickets for the full show here.
Organised sports day games will be held after 2:30pm on the Old Bowling Green. Prizes will be handed out to the winners.
The raffle will be drawn at 4:30pm, just before the Fun Day closes at 5pm.
This is the first event on Onchan Park for any years, please come along, enjoy the afternoon and help us make it a great success.
