Two Events in Two Days at Par Beach
The last few days of July were busy for Friends of Par Beach with events on the afternoon of Thursday 28th and late evening on Saturday 30th.
The events team from Groundwork SW brought the Cadbury’s sponsored Spots v Stripes to Par Beach on Thursday 28th July, where some 200 children and adults joined in or watched the fun. Participants joined either the Spots or Stripes team and competed in sack races, space-hopper races, giant Jenga, beach Noughts and Crosses and tug-o-war with great enthusiasm cheered on by excited parents and grandparents.
The weather was perfect for the event, which brought to life a busy Par Beach and everyone went home tired, but happy.
The weather for the second event on the evening Saturday 30th July was not so helpful as the sky clouded over for the start of the Star Gazing on the beach. Kit Williams answered questions about astronomy and found out a bit of what the 30 attendees already knew. Having decided to enjoy the tea and coffee provided by Friends of Par Beach, as there was not a star in sight, the clouds cleared and everyone was treated to a description and identification of many constellations.
Despite the disappointment with the clouds some members, non members and new members enjoyed the event, and Friends of Par Beach plan something later in the year.
