Larks in the Parks 2011

The 2011 Larks in the Parks event was extremely successful this year. As usual, it was held in the Marlborough Pavilion open space and we were blessed with a scorching hot day. Over 400 people turned up to enjoy the fun and have a picnic with their families and friends.

There were many stalls including a plant stall, bric-a-brac, face painting, wet sponge throwing etc. There were also many workshops including a weaving workshop, circus skills, sports multi-skills and archery which were enjoyed by the youngsters.

We were treated to some wonderful music and singing by a father and daughter band (some real talent there!) and the Mandeville school choir. And of course there was a wonderful refreshment tent. 

The event was coordinated by Mandeville school and money raised went towards the new building project at the school.
