Summer 2023 in Review: Great Linford Parish Council's Summer Activities
As the sun sets on Summer 2023, it's time to reflect on the wonderful moments and experiences that were created during the summer holidays. From circus skills to petting zoos and creative workshops, the Parish Council worked hard to ensure that families had a memorable and enjoyable summer. Let's take a closer look at the highlights of this year's summer activities and how they contributed to building lasting memories for families in the parish.
1. Circus Skills with Show Time Circus
One of the standout events of the summer was the partnership with Show Time Circus, providing free circus skills workshops for children. Kids had the opportunity to learn juggling, plate spinning, and acrobatics. It was a chance to acquire new talents, build confidence, and have a blast.
2. Twice the Fun with the Petting Zoo
Great Linford Parish Council brought a petting zoo to the parish not once, but twice! Families had the chance to get up close and personal with adorable animals, from fluffy bunnies to friendly goats. These furry encounters brought smiles and joy to children and adults alike, making summer unforgettable.
3. Kids Summer Central with Life International Christian Fellowship
The Parish Council also joined forces with the Life International Christian Fellowship which organised Kids Summer Central. This event was a hub of exciting activities and games, fostering a sense of community and unity among local children. From arts and crafts to sports, it was a space for kids to have fun and make new friends.
4. Messy Play Sessions with Learn & Play by Binny
We supported Learn & Play by Binny, who hosted free messy play sessions. These sessions allowed children to let their creativity run wild and explore their artistic side without any worries about making a mess. It was a colourful, messy, and utterly enjoyable experience for all involved.
5. Seed Bomb Sculpture Workshop with Milton Keynes Art Centre
Milton Keynes Art Centre and Great Linford Parish Council joined hands to provide a Seed Bomb Sculpture Workshop. This creative endeavour allowed families to come together and craft beautiful seed-filled sculptures that would later be planted to help our environment flourish. It was a fantastic way to promote both art and eco-consciousness.
Tommy Hayes, Community Liaison Officer for Great Linford Parish Council commented “Our commitment to making Summer 2023 memorable for local families has left an indelible mark on our community. From the exciting circus skills to the heartwarming petting zoo visits, the fun-filled Kids Summer Central, the messy play sessions, and the eco-friendly Seed Bomb Sculpture Workshop, the summer holidays were packed with engaging activities for all ages.
We hope we have helped children learn something new, supported families in having a blast, and played a crucial role in building happy summer holiday memories. Thank you to our partners, and to everyone who came along to an event or activity.”
