Party in the Park

During 2011 we ran a 'pilot' Party in the Park during National Families Week.    That event was so successful that our Vice President, Lion Vicky Stabler, who had drawn our attention to National Families Week, was appointed to co-ordinate a bigger version of the party.    All Crofton Lions members took on different aspects of the event, which, this time, was run likew a giant street party to celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee!

Take a look at the Presidents Pics of the event and you will quickly recognise what a great success it was.

The weather was'nt as kind to us as we would have wished but you can see from the smiling faces we were determined to have a good time.    A major part of the entertainment was provided by a Duo called "Timeless" and a young singer called Channelle who took us down six decades of musical memories.    The children were entertained by a Stiltwalking, balloonmodelling, juggling magician called Andy!
