Lichfield District Council is busy planning this August’s Fun Day, which is a free entry event for children and their families. Held at Beacon Park, the day features inflatable fun, a carousel, face painting, stalls, sports and games, and the chance to compete in the Teddy Races. To make sure the event is extra special, the council is hoping to attract more stalls and companies that run activities for children.

Activities could be anything from arts and crafts, to creating mud sculptures or having a go at archery, as long as they appeal to younger park visitors. Stall holders may also want to get in touch if they are interested in bringing their stall to the event. This could be local charities or clubs looking to raise their profile or small gift stalls aimed at children.

Councillor Liz Little, Cabinet Member for Recycling & Leisure, said: “Fun Day is aimed at children and young people, and is a great way to spend a summer’s day outdoors enjoying the many activities on offer. We hope to attract extra stalls and have even more activities on offer to make it our best Fun Day yet.”

The Fun Day will take place at Beacon Park’s sports pitches on Wednesday 7th August, between 11am and 3pm. It’s free to get in, but there is a small charge for some of the activities.

If you are interested in bringing your activity or stall to Beacon Park’s Fun Day, please email parks@lichfielddc.gov.uk or call the team on 01543 308869.
