THE national day for play will be celebrated in Weston this summer with a multicultural theme.

Playday, which is partly funded by the National Lottery, highlights the importance of play in children’s lives and will be held on August 1.

The event will take place at Clarence Park and St Paul’s Church, in Walliscote Road, from 11am and music, dance, sports and games for families and children will be on offer.

Families are invited to take a picnic and take part in a hand-picked line up of free activities with a bike attraction, inflatable planetarium night sky shows, drumming from Japan, Caribbean steel pans, arts and crafts, storytelling from Africa, tropical fruit tasting and Brazilian martial art workshops.

The event is open to everyone, so there is no need to book.

For more information on Playday contact Lynn Winter on 01934 427134 or Xanne Blythe on 07920 061445.
