Fun in the Park, 1st June 2013

The annual Fun in the Park event was held in the Abbey Grounds, Abingdon on Saturday.  The event is a family fun day/fete organised by the town council.  Entry as usual was free and many of Abingdon's clubs and societies have a stall.

The green gym were in attendance as usual with many of our members volunteering on the stall throughout the day.  As well as promoting our activities and providing information to potential new recruits we were selling marmalade, lemon curd and cakes made by our members.  In addition, we had a treasure hunt game where members of the public could stick a pin on a map of Abingdon and win a prize if the pin fell on one of our pre-determined winning squares.

The weather for the occasion was lovely and the event attracted a large crowd.  We had good levels of interest in our stall and we look forward to welcoming any new members who may have become aware of our work.
