New Directions in Newark holds family fun day

29 July 2016

Our family fun day was a roaring success. Beautiful weather, fantastic turn out (over 25 people participated ) and superb company.

The day started exceedingly hot but fortunately cooled down for the rounders match. Teams were picked and the game started well, until an enthusiastic batter broke the bat. A replacement was quickly purchased and then it all ran smoothly. The teams had a quick rest and lunch break before the relay obstacle course.

The first event was a skipping race followed by an egg and spoon race, then came the apple bobbing before spinning round a broom handle before sprinting to the finish line to tag the next member of the team. It was a very close run event but all ended amicably.

I can honestly say that I have not laughed so much or enjoyed myself as much in a long time. The day was finished off cornettos and magnums and everyone agreed that it had been a brilliant day. We are already planning our next fun event.
