Huge turnout for Family Fun Day

Family Fun Day fun day walford village hall ross on wye

A PERFECT blend of late summer sunshine, fun, games, tempting food and drink and a dog show drew the crowds for our Fun Day on Bank Holiday Monday.

The event was officially opened by the Deputy Mayor of Ross-on-Wye, Cllr Bev Pope and soon the crowds arrived to enjoy the fun.

The dog show was a particular success.  All categories were well supported with the waggiest tale putting the judges to the test.

Children and families also enjoyed traditional games like splat the rat and hook a duck and also took delight in taking part in the egg and spoon and sack races.

Local band Singled Out entertained the crowds whilst the public enjoyed food from Vic’s Big Baps and drinks from the Drunken Boar mobile bar.

The event was a huge success and the money raised will go towards improvements at the hall. In addition, the event supported the Midlands Air Ambulance.

Tim Pople, Chairman of the village hall trustees’ committee commented: “We are so grateful to all the local businesses and public for supporting the event, it was a huge success, and we look forward to the next event.”

The hall is available to hire for parties and events and the committee is committed to organising a whole calendar of events going forward and would welcome any suggestions or feedback on what activities people would like to see.
