RSPB at Halton Fun Day - Report

RSPB at Halton Fun Day - Report

RSPB Lancaster Local Group joins in the Fun Day at Halton

Since January 2018 we have been holding our indoor meetings at the Centre @ Halton. The centre is run by a committee of volunteers and as well as indoor meeting rooms, a cafe and a catering kitchen, there are excellent outdoor facilities and equipment. It has become a vibrant hub for the local community. The centre manager and the marketing officer have helped to promote our meetings and attendance has been good.

So when they decided to hold a Fun Day to celebrate 40 years of a community centre on the site we were pleased to support them and booked a space on the field to set up a display about our group. We were joined by Sophie King of the RSPB events team, who brought along the RSPB gazebo and general information about the RSPB.

We set up the group display board along with our programmes and group membership information as well as a children's tombola and make a dragonfly activity.

There were many stalls and activities on the field and the day was well attended. Our stall received plenty of interest and we were able to chat to a lot of local people and make the community more aware of the group and the events we hold throughout the year.

A good day was had by all and the weather stayed dry and sunny which helped the Fun Day go with a swing.
