Parents, children and young people from across the Ards and North Down Borough attended the fun day event hosted by the Ards and North Down Locality Planning Group in Londonderry Park on 1 September to celebrate the end of the summer! Speaking from the event one parent said ‘It was a great day with lots to do for kids and great for parents as it was free!’.
The Ards and North Down Family Fun Day was the first multi agency event hosted by CYPSP Ards and North Down Locality Planning Group since it came together last October.
Cathy Polly, Ards Community Network Manager and Chair of the CYPSP Ards and North Down Locality Planning Group spoke following the event and said ‘This event was a great opportunity for the support organisations from across Ards and North Down to come together and engage with families from different areas and backgrounds. The day was a great success with over 30 organisations providing a range of information of local services and also providing fun activities for all ages. There was something for everyone and most importantly the children and their families really enjoyed tacking part in the different games and activities’.
