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.

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.”
