The Friends of Jubilee Green (FOJG) are staging an Easter Fun Day this Sunday (28th March).
The group is hoping for fine weather between 2pm and 3pm , when an Easter egg hunt and Easter bonnet parade will take place around the park.
Refreshments will be available in The Woodlands Suite of the adjacent Jubilee Centre, where craft activities will also be provided.
The event is free but the group will be asking for donations for the refreshments, to raise funds for upcoming projects such as the youth structure (shelter) in the park and the “flying carpet” (a new piece of play equipment).
Cllr Ben Walker of Bradley Stoke Town Council (BSTC) was recently co-opted to serve as an advisor to the FOJG committee. He will, however, have no voting rights as the group must remain an independent community group in order to be eligible for grant funding from a number of sources.
Michelle Dent of FOJG explained to The Journal:
“We requested this to ensure a smooth working partnership between us and BSTC.”
“We are looking to install new equipment, improving and enriching the park area and want to ensure that BSTC are aware of our intentions and activities at the planning stage as our projects have maintenance cost implications for BSTC.”
“We want to be in a position of working with the council and having their full understanding of our intentions.”
