We have a display of photos of Onchan Park over the years, some press cuttings from the Save Onchan Park Campaign from last year, and we’d like you to vote on the next project you’d like to see at the park – choices are between a picnic area, Multi-use-games-area, table tennis, an accessible ramp and play facilities or a wildlife/garden area. We would also like to know what new equipment you’d like to see on the park – whether it’s a trim trail, outdoor fitness, traditional play equipment or something a bit different. The display and voting will be on the Old Bowling Green all afternoon, so come along and have your say.
There will be refreshments and toilet facilities so you can enjoy the whole afternoon at the park with your family and friends:
Dave from The Inn at the Bank will be providing hot food and drinks,
The Scouts will have a candy floss stall,
There will be an ice cream van on the park for the afternoon,
We will have an amazing cake to guess-the-weight.
Have a go on one of the many traditional stalls – tombola, cake sale, water-to-wine stall, guessing games and much more.
This year we have a bouncy castle, an inflatable football game and hook-a-duck on the Old Bowling Green. 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!
The raffle will be drawn at 4:30pm, just before the Fun Day closes at 5pm.
We have had some really successful events over the last year, please come along, enjoy the afternoon and help us make this one a great success.
