The last week of the summer school term. Weather scorching hot, not a cloud in the sky. Children breaking up for a nice six week holiday break. A perfect time for Pitsmoor Adventure Playground to hold their Bollywood Party, on Saturday 27th July.
I got straight into the preparation of the arts and crafts section where the aim was to create your own paper-decorated lollipop. Once again, I was in my element, drawing and designing lollies with the children who were more than enthusiastic about the task.
During the day, there was a beautiful menu on offer with curries, samosas and salads, which were delicious. The heavens opened and it was a big mission to keep the children inside. One young man I could not keep inside the building. He just kept saying he loved the rain and was completely soaked.
Despite the weather, all the attendees, children, parents and carers had a great time and got involved with all the events including the dancing.
The playground is now set up for a very busy summer holiday which, I am sure, will be very well attended as usual. Thank you for a great day.
