In partnership between KEY and MiPAD Milnthorpe’s May Day Fun took place on the 1st May 2017.
The day saw the official opening of the Milnthorpe Trim Trial – exercise equipment. Activities included; taster sports activities delivered from all the local sport, dance and music groups, Arts and craft tent, Face-painting, Giant inflatables, meet and greet the animals from Oasis Wildlife Park and much more.
The fun day turned out to be a huge success and was well attended by families and young people aged 14 and under. We received positive feedback for the day and the community are already talking about the next one!
Working in partnership with MiPAD was a good match and gave both organisations a chance to share skills to enable a successful day.
Young people from the Milnthorpe, Arnside and Intergenerational projects were involved in fundraising for their groups activities.
The engagement of the community groups was crucial to the event, it was fantastic how everyone was fully engaged and enthusiastic, willing to give up their time to make it such a success. The day provided activities that were engaging, inclusive, fun and created a real sense of community.
Watch out for the next fun day – MAY 2019
