LENNOX Park at Old Beach was the place to be at the start of May during the school holidays, as part of a fantastic local holiday program.
Good Beginnings, the PCYC, Brighton Council and Mission Beat joined forces to invite the entire community to a day filled with activities for all ages.
Everyone warmed up with a sausage sizzle after having an animal balloon made by the balloon man. Children were running around with painted faces and kicking footballs and playing games.
The fire brigade allowed would-be firemen and women to climb into the driver’s seat and sound the siren. The children were shown how to use the fire hoses and hear stories of all the amazing work that firefighters do. The men In blue showed the children the police car and what it feels like to be driving one.
Clarence Football hero Jeremy Webberley called in and passed balls to excited local kids and helped them brush up on their footy skills.
The Derwent Soccer Club gave practical demonstrations on the game of soccer and encouraged the kids to learn how to play.
The day was funded by Communities for Children.
