April 2018 Update
It was lovely to see so many people out using the park last month in the snowy weather. Despite the cold, plenty of children and families were out enjoying themselves. We saw snowmen and sledging as well as tunnels and caves being dug out of the drifts, and of course the obligatory good-humoured snowball fights!
Looking forward to the (hopefully!) better spring weather, we are pleased to be able to announce our Playranger dates for this year. These are a combination of full days (10am-4pm) and after school sessions (4pm-6pm). The full days will take place in the May half term (30th May) and throughout the summer holidays (25th July, 1st, 8th and 15th August). The after-school sessions will run on the 13th, 20th and 27th June and the 4th, 11th and 18th July. The rugby club have recently confirmed that they will be opening on Playranger days so that people can purchase drinks and snacks, so pop the dates in your diary and bring the kids along for some fun activities, all completely free of charge! At the time of writing, our first Playranger session of the year is about to take place, so next month there will be an update on how that’s gone, and hopefully some pictures of the fun. If you would like further information about what Playrangers offer, please visit their website; https://playgloucestershire.org.uk/.
As I’m sure some of you know, work to organise ‘Bredon’s Big Day Out’ is well underway. We are currently in the process of signing up stall holders and have a few spots left. Last year we had an eclectic mix of skilled crafts people, local businesses and charities promoting themselves, running fund raising games and selling their wares. Stalls are priced at a very reasonable £12. IF YOU WOULD LIKE A STALL PLEASE CONTACT US ASAP BY EMAILING ANDREA AT Andrea.firstname.lastname@example.org TO RESERVE A SPACE.
We have recently done a prize draw for our Club 200 members and I can confirm that the lucky winners are; B.K. Rogers (£50), Martin Miles (£25), Dr & Mrs Rigby (£10) and Hazel & Phil Sheehan (£10). These draws take place regularly throughout year, so if you would like to be in with a chance of winning next time, we are always looking for new members. Membership is priced at £10 a year and is used to help fund activities and
