It was a great day lots of the residents came out and joined in the fun. The children loved the rides and there was a free bouncy castle. Activity Sheffield organised a penalty shoot out and the adults joined in too. The rain stopped play and we all thought the fun was going to end but it only lasted for five minutes and cleared up quickly then the sun came back out.
“It was great to see every one joining in and enjoying themselves” says one of the residents “the friends group have worked really hard to bring the community together”.
Councillor Denise Fox and Member Pat Emmingham organised the Birley Labour Party “hook a bag” stall with a free prize every time. The kids loved it and kept coming back for another go, it was great to see their faces light up when they won a toy and sweets.
The local supermarkets had donated fruit and the volunteers made fruit kebabs for everyone to try.
Local businesses had also been generous in donating raffle prizes which was most appreciated.
