Mayor of Derry's family fun day to take place this weekend
19 Sept 2018
Brooke Park is the place to be this weekend as the Mayor invites local children along for some family fun. The event is taking place this Saturday September 22, from 2pm – 5pm, with all donations in aid of the Mayor’s chosen charity, Foyle Search and Rescue. Announcing the event, the Mayor, Councillor John Boyle, said he was delighted to be hosting the event in the beautiful grounds of the recently regenerated park. “Brooke Park has undergone a major transformation and recently the extensive work which has gone into the project has been recognised with a second Green Flag award. I can think of no better location for a community event, and I would like to invite families to come along and enjoy some great activities and support a fantastic cause. “Foyle Search and Rescue are providing an invaluable service for the local community and this is an opportunity for us to acknowledge that work with a huge showing of support. “I’m really looking forward to meeting and greeting you all so please stop for a picture and say hello.” Activities on the day will be based in and around the Café Area and children’s playpark with a whole host of things to enjoy, with Bouncy Castles, a Rodeo Bull and a special carousel. Children can also enjoy face painting and balloon modelling as well as complimentary hot chocolate.
