THE Whitehill and Bordon Town Partnership’s annual fun day is returning on Saturday.
The event was established with the aim of providing town residents with a day of entertainment and games during the summer school holiday that would be easy on the wallet - in fact, it is free.
This year’s event takes place between 10am and 4pm at the Forest Community Centre in Bordon.
It looks set to be bigger than ever, with more than 40 individuals and organisations attending.
“We are delighted with the level of participation and number of stalls at this year’s fun day, which offers a real benefit to the local community,” said volunteer event co-ordinator Claire Coxwell.
“We had more than 1,000 people attend last year and we hope to see even more join us on August 12 to get involved in the free activities on offer.”
Whether it is learning a skill, indulging your creativity, seeking some guidance or simply getting out the house for a day of fun, Bordon’s Forest Community Centre is the place to go, said organisers.
Two town councillors will share their talents in woodcarving, painting and creating wire sculptures, and First Class Falconry will take along birds of prey.
A barbecue will be provided by the 1st Headley Scouts and healthy-eating options will be offered by Radian’s RKdia catering.
African drumming techniques will be taught by Linda Wright and people can take their bikes for an MOT with the “bike doctor” from Cycle Sphere.
For young ones there will be a toy-car play area provided by the Mum2Mum Market.
There will be inflatables, bungee trampolines, face painting, balloon modelling and cake and cookie decorating.
Ms Coxwell added: “The fun day is not only a great way to showcase some of the great activities and services that Whitehill and Bordon has to offer.
“The summer holidays can be a challenging time for parents on a budget who are looking to entertain kids, and the fun day provides an opportunity bring the community together for a great, affordable day out.”
