Housing association holds family fun day

MORE than 100 children and parents attended a free family day on Makins recreation ground in Henley.

Housing association Soha staged the event for residents of the Gainsborough estate.


Attractions included a climbing tower supervised by volunteers from the charity Adventure Plus. There were also games, a treasure hunt with prizes for every participant, a loom band jewellery workshop, circus skills and African drumming workshops, a face-painting stall and a barbecue.

Staff from the Rainbow Children’s Centre, which is based at the d:two centre in Market Place, put out toys for babies and toddlers.

Henley police community support officers Helen Anderson and Claire Hewett attended Wednesday’s event along with Mayor Martin Akehurst.

The Mayor said: “It’s lovely to see kids out enjoying themselves during the holidays.

“Events like this help people get to know their neighbours. There’s a great community spirit and Soha has done an excellent job.”

Jackie Logan, resident involvement manager for Soha, said: “I’m really pleased with how it went and so glad the rain held off. ”

Dave Eggleton, vice-chairman of the Gainsborough Residents’ Association, said: “The number of people here shows how popular it was. Everyone really enjoyed themselves.”
