Spring event success despite snow

FAMILY event Spring Day @ The Park was a success despite unseasonal weather conditions say organisers.

It took place at Alexandra Park on Sunday (March 31) with stalls, activities and music.

Popular were the egg and spoon race, funfair and the birds of prey brought along by 1066 Falconry, and performances by Inside Out Theatre Company.

Organiser Louise Kelleher said: “It was a good example of the British stiff upper lip faced with adverse weather conditions.

“It did snow a little bit, but it seemed like people had a really nice time and decided to come out whatever the weather.”

The next Day @ The Park is August 31, though there is to be a programme of events and activities running throughout the summer at the park.
