Fun for all the family as crowds flock to summer fun at Droitwich's Lido Park

Droitwich Editorial 4th Sep, 2018   0

THE FUN-FILLED workshops held at parks in Droitwich and other towns across Wychavon District attracted hundreds of visitors.

The free family-friendly events featured mechanical organ, street marionettes and puppet shows, including the traditional Punch and Judy.

There were also community circus skills workshops with the Great Raymondo where youngsters could learn feather balancing, low stilts and plate spinning to fun bikes, juggling and low tightrope.

Droitwich’s Lido Park had the highest attendance of 320 people and Standard photographer Marcus Mingins was on hand to capture the magic.

Coun Emma Stokes, portfolio holder for environment and street scene at Wychavon District Council which organised the events, said: “We have had a fantastic response to our family fun days, with many people taking part.

“The circus workshops and the puppet shows have been a perfect way to make sure children are having fun and learning something new at the same time.

“We hope to run similar free events next year.”
