Date posted: 14-08-2012
OVER 250 parents and children attended the Family Funday at Aveley Childrens Centre on Friday 10 August.
The aim for the day was to provide an opportunity for children and parents to learn and play together with plenty of entertainment and activities to keep them busy, from Zumba dancing, football, arts and crafts, water play, a “sensory room” for babies and the famous bouncy castle. The local fire brigade also attended along with Family Information Service and the NHS to promote health and vitality.
Cllr Yash Gupta MBE, Mayor of Thurrock opened the event and said “I am very appreciative and impressed by the hard work and commitment the staff and volunteers have put into making this such a great day for everyone as well as the help and support that was available to improve health and wellbeing”
The event received very positive feedback from the evaluations and a second event will be taking place in West Thurrock (including Purfleet) Children’s Centre on 17 August 11am-3pm.
