Charity hosts community fun day

ABOUT 150 parents and children attended a family fun day at Freemans Meadow recreation ground, off Fair Mile, Henley.

The third annual event, which was run by youth and community project Nomad, featured a bouncy castle and inflatable slide, face-painting, barbecue, football shoot-outs and cake-icing.

Organiser Sue Prior said: “The atmosphere was great and everybody had a fun, relaxing afternoon. It’s quite a low-key event but we want to bless the community on that side of Henley with something they can enjoy.”

Meanwhile, a bike ride in aid of Nomad will be held tomorrow (Saturday).

The 100km ride will start and finish at the project’s base at the d:two centre in Upper Market Place, beginning at 10am. The riders will follow a 50km route through the Chilterns which they will repeat in the afternoon.



Each cyclist is aiming to raise £100 with all the proceeds going to support Nomad’s learning programme for young people and adults.

Registration costs £20 at http://www.totalgiving.co.uk/mypage/nomad100cycle2016 or email Tim Prior at tim@nomadhenley.co.uk
