The Bearwood Diamond Jubilee celebrations are fast approaching and things are starting to take shape for the Family Fun Day on Monday 4th June at Bearwood Chapel.
Dave from Bearwood Chapel gave us an update on what the day has in store.
"The idea is that there will be three zones....The Street Party Zone,The Games Zone and the Reflective Zone".
The Street Party Zone will be "in front of Bearwood Chapel, leading down the Chapel drive, we’ll be serving tea, coffee, soft drinks and cake throughout the day. The square will be decorated with bunting and balloons. There’ll be balloon modelling and face painting for youngsters and stalls including a cake stall and 'Charlie’s Mom’s Chocolate Factory.'"
Yeah, that's great news! We love Charlie's Mom's Chocolate Factory. (Watch out for our post in the next few days about our visit to Charlie's Mom's Chocolate Factory.)
There's going to be loads of fun for everyone and Dave's particularly excited about the Games Zone. "Make your way onto Calthorpe Haven where there’ll be lots of fun and games for the whole family including an obstacle course, 3 a-side football, tug of war, three legged race, sack race etc. As a special treat, the Bearwood Chapel puppets will be making a special guest appearance for a puppet show during the day. At lunch time, the Haven will be cleared and we are encouraging everyone who is able to bring along a picnic lunch and rug to sit on as part of the Big Lunch."
David said that if you want some quiet time the Reflective Zone is the place for you....."in the Chapel building we’ll be hosting an exhibition of the Chapel’s history. There’ll also be an arts workshop where you can have a go at painting, drawing or even sculpting. Children's activities will include "How to draw your own corgi" and there will be a special Royal Quiz. There'll be somewhere quiet for those who simply want to sit down, put their feet up and enjoy a cuppa."
There's going to be live music as well. It's going to be a great day!
David said that "we're hoping for warm sunny weather but rest assured that we have a wet weather plan which will involve moving the party indoors and making full use of the Chapel premises."
The weather's so glorious at the moment, fingers crossed it's here for the whole of the summer!
