The last Wacky Wednesday of the school holiday brought down the curtain on the programme of summer fun on Wednesday 29 August.
Liverty’s Shona Stone and teams from across the community – including Court Fields Pre School staff, Wellington Town Council, Wellington Churches Together, Better, Reminiscence Learning, getset, Wellington One Team, SSAL and Taunton Deane Borough Council, Steve Hill, Wellington Police Community Support Officer and Devon, Somerset Fire and Rescue Service and local sports clubs – have all combined to give children up to the age of 11 and their parents and carers four delightful play dates since the beginning of August. And all for just £1. Now the Splat the Rat, the face paints and the bicycle smoothie-maker will be packed away until October half-term.
Organiser Shona Stone said, “The whole series of Wacky Wednesdays have been brilliant this year. So many people have come along. All of them have been really well-attended.”
The final ‘End of Summer’ event took place in Wellington Park and was attended by Mayor Councillor Gary James.
Wacky Wednesdays are becoming very popular with families looking for genuine entertainment opportunities in the community during the holidays. They also provide a chance for adults to access a range of local services.
