With the fantastic weather and the park packed with children enjoying the first of their summer weekend’s off school the activity programme kicked off with Boogie Beat exercise, music and games hosted by the fabulous Gemma. Kids from the ages of 4 – 11 took party in the circus themed event on Saturday and every child thoroughly enjoyed it, great fun for the parents to watch too and what’s more the fast paced energised activities exhausted everyone! We look forward to working with Gemma again before the end of summer!

On Sunday we had the amazing Parkour stunt master Paul from The Playground visit for the 1st session of Parkour. A big hit with the boys and girls of all ages, something the teens in particular enjoyed! After Paul’s basic safety instructions and and getting to know the course the kids and teens were taught the basic steps for wall jumping, fence scaling and safety rolls and manoeuvres, it was amazing to watch and great for parents to know if their kids insist on being little monkeys they know how to do it in a safe way and how to land correctly. Pauls own stunt display had the kids totally enthralled and amazed, we will definitely be having another session in the near future!
