All for fun and fun for all at Woodhill family event

Woodhill Family Fun Day
Woodhill Family Fun Day

AROUND 1,000 adults and children converged on the recent Woodhill Family Fun Day – enjoying a range of attractions, entertainment and more.

The annual event – which was blessed with great weather – is a firm favourite with people from the local community and beyond.

Donald Macdonald, chairman of Woodhill Residents’ Group, said: “The turn-out was great. We had to extend the event to clear the queues that had developed around the bouncy castles and mobile climbing wall.

“The Commonwealth Games have-a-go attractions were well attended and added greatly to the event – so much so that they will now be a permanent part of the fun day.”

Tribute has been paid to Mr Rafique at Four Square Newsagents who sponsored the event, East Dunbartonshire Council’s Grants Award Committee who provided support funding and senior pupils at Bishopbriggs Academy who went along to help run the stalls and attractions.

The fun day is the organisation’s main fundraising event of the year and generous raffle donations were received from A-star Sports, Sporty Kids, Domino’s Pizzas, Maureen Johnstone Massage and Woodhill Pharmacy.

Thanks have been given to members of the residents’ group and their families who worked tirelessly on the day.

Donald added: “Finally were are very grateful to the local residents and families who attended and gave us their support, which proves just how great a community Woodhill actually is.”

The funds raised mean the group will be able to run “lots of exciting events” over the next 12 months.

The fun day was held on Sunday, September 22, in Etive Park, Bishopbriggs.
