We all know what it’s like – they’re off school for 2 days and already bored. Well, there’s no need for the kids to be moping around the house and getting under your feet this summer – there are plenty of activities going on locally to keep them busy.
There’s a play scheme at Brownhills Activity Centre, a community fun day on 10th August and a whole bunch of stuff going on at Brownhills Lbrary in the Parkview Centre. As I get details of other stuff, I’ll post it here.
If you have anything you want publicising, please send me details and I’ll get the word out. BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers!
Eamonn Regan and Bonita Clayton of Brownhills Community Association, have been in touch with a couple of flyers for events and information relating to happenings at the Brownhills Activity Centre over the summer holidays.
The Activity Centre is what my generation would know as ‘The Annexe’ – the old Central Boy’s School, now a community centre. You can pop in, or call them on 01543 452119.
Bonita and her fellow community organisers have lots of stuff going on, and loads of great facilities, right in the heart of Brownhills. I love what they’re about and all the great things they’re doing.
Bonita has asked me to send you this information about two planned activities for this coming summer.
First, a 6 week school holiday Playscheme organised for 4-11 year olds which will include bouncing castle, outdoor activities, arts and crafts, games and activities at Chasewater and Holland Park. The Playscheme begins on Monday 29th July and ends Friday 6th September. There is a charge, but it is reasonable and parents can book places to avoid disappointment. Supervising staff are Ofsted approved and parents can be reassured their children will be in safe hands.
Second and finally, a Community Fun Day on Saturday 10th August 2013, between 11am and 4pm with free car parking and most of the children’s activities free of charge. This day is being funded by Walsall Housing Group (WHG). The ‘Move’ truck and ‘Reach Up Tower’ will be in-situ, there will be lots of fun stalls, a small children’s fun-fayre, Clown, Face Painting, Karaoke and Dancing. Promises to be a great day.
Volunteer, Brownhills Community Association.
My best wishes to Eamonn, Bonita and the gang, and please do pop along and check them out. Alternatively, print out a few of these flyers and put them up on your nearest noticeboard.
