The Hub Woolavington Family Fun Weekend 5th/6th July2019

The Hub Woolavington hosted their first ever community events during 5th/6th July on Woolavington Sports Field and were delighted with the number of people who attended and fully enjoyed what was on offer.

They started with a Barn Dance on the Friday evening which caused quite a few laughs when anyone got the steps or the hand moves wrong – not that it mattered when a good time was had by all.

The music was provided by Bridgwater Folk Dance Band with a lady caller telling us the dances and how to perform them.

Saturday began with registration for the Novelty Dog Show at 10.00 a.m. then at 11.00 a.m. Glastonbury Town Crier, David Greenway officially opened the day’s proceedings.

There was a Climbing Wall and inflatable “Bouncy Castle”, a Sizzler ride and Shooting Gallery, Skittles, Popcorn, Candy Floss, Ice Creams, Burgers and Chips etc. plus Face Painting, Hair Feathers, Nerf Range and assorted items. Tea, coffee, juices and cakes were available in the Pavilion.

The highlight of the afternoon was at 2.00 p.m. when the recently formed Woolavington Youth Theatre group gave a wonderful taster of songs from their Autumn show “Scheherazade” to a very appreciative audience in the marquee. It was amazing to witness the emerging talent of these youngsters and see how they are gaining confidence to perform in public.

Many children also availed themselves of the fixed equipment in the Children’s Play Area, which was probably the first time that it had seen that much use.

To round off the weekend on Saturday evening, there was 60’s to Present Day music provided by singer/guitarist Ian Valentine and Two-Tone Duo (Bridgwater) with dancing for those who wanted to get up and boogie.

Our many thanks go to Woolavington & Puriton Big Local (Villages Together) for their major financial sponsorship of the weekend, without which it would have been a non-starter. Woolavington Parish Council also made a contribution and gave permission for the use of the Sports Field and Pavilion at nil cost. Black Rock Vets organised the entries for the dog show, also judging the various classes and awarding rosettes and prizes to the lucky winners.
