The Fun Day 2009

Sunday 14th June from Noon til 19.00pm

The Memorial Park was buzzing with activity from a variety of childrens’ activities including inflatables, electric go karts, face painting, pottery throwing and high wall climbing, to a collection of stalls selling various arts and crafts, jewellery and childrens’ games, to experiencing holistic therapies and meeting various community associations providing opportunities to discuss interests and gain advice. Local residents could spend some time relaxing with a drink in the food section and soak up the whole carnival atmosphere to the backdrop of various performances and music from local groups and bands!

Bellydancing is a beautiful and ancient dance form that is fast becoming the latest dance craze in Britain. Originally danced throughout the Middle East for centuries, now stars such as Shakira have brought bellydance to the attention of everyone. Bellydance has tremendous grace and emotional appeal as well as being sexy and fun! Come and see for yourself!

Sea Shanties, davidhilder@mayburylodge.co.uk. In the days when human muscles were the only power source available aboard ship, sea shanties served a practical purpose: the rhythm of the song served to synchronize the movements of the sailors as they toiled at repetitive tasks. They also served a social purpose: singing and listening to songs is pleasant. Come aboard and let them entertain you!
