The Friends of Jubilee Green (FoJG) are staging their second ‘Summer of Fun’ event between 10am and 12 noon this coming Saturday (20th August) at the Jubilee Centre and Jubilee Green, Savages Wood Road.
The event has activities that are suitable for the 5-12 years age group; however, families with children of all ages are welcome, as there will be plenty of craft materials and outdoor toys to entertain younger children.
The activities on offer will include:
- A 50ft inflatable assault course (weather dependent)
- Football fun
- Hoolahooping workshop
- Skipping workshop
- Parachute games with the Woodcraft Folk
- Free bike checks with Stokes Cycling Club and an easy 5-mile family bike ride leaving at 12pm heading over to Stoke Gifford for a play in a park before returning to Bradley Stoke
- Two craft activities – including making collage pictures and hairband/bracelet making
- Lots of outdoor toys including larger toys borrowed from The Childrens Playlink
All of the above are free for the families to partake in. Funding from Bradley Stoke Town Council and the support of community groups have ensured everyone in the community can enjoy themselves regardless of financial circumstances.
The following attractions will have small charges:
- Holy Trinity Church will be providing a low cost tuck shop and refreshments
- FoJG will be providing 20p temporary tattoos
Michelle Dent, FoJG Chair, told The Journal:
“We have our fingers crossed for good weather and to build upon the success of the pre-school event [held on 23rd July]. We noticed after the pre-school event that a couple of families brought picnics to enjoy in the park after the event, so we are suggesting to families to bring a picnic to this Saturday’s event along with their bikes and make a day out of it.”
“My personal thanks to the volunteers of FoJG who give up so much of their time to organise and run these events and to the community groups and Holy Trinity Church for their support.”
The third event in the Summer of Fun series will be a youth event for 13-years and older, due to take place in early September.
FoJG say they are grateful to Bradley Stoke Town Council for their ongoing support, which has enabled them to build upon last year’s schedule of events for the benift of the community.
