The autumn half-term’s Wacky Wednesday on 25 October attracted more than 80 children to Wellington Baptist Church, South Street, with their parents and carers for a morning of fun.
Organiser Shona Stone, Community Empowerment Officer for Knightstone Housing, and her supporters from Wellington One Team, Better (formally Tone Leisure), Getset, Somerset Skills & Learning, TDBC and Churches Together provided games and activities including face-painting, ceramics, stained-glass window-making, Splat the Rat and Giant Jenga, and Malcolm Magician turned balloons into beasts.
Wellington Mayor Gary James and Councillor Vivienne Stock-Williams were on hand to offer advice about Family Support and the Children’s Centre.
Wacky Wednesdays have become a feature of school holidays and are attended by increasing numbers of participants. All the proceeds are recycled to provide games and activities for children up to 11 years old and refreshments for their parents and carers.
The next Wacky Wednesday will be at Christmas.
