Last Saturday we held our first Family Funday at the Flower Park in Blaenavon.
The day saw a range of activities on show, with stalls, face painting and live music from local band The Tin Shed Collective.
As well as providing fun and games for residents, the event raised money for the mayor’s charities – the Royal British Legion and the British Heart Foundation.
The tug of war competition proved to be very popular with everyone especially the youngsters.
The St John’s Ambulance cadets Pontypool Division won the trophy.
A number of prize-winning pooches were also on display with the dog show organised by Becky Harris of Heritage Hounds.
Blaenavon Town Mayor Cllr Jac Denley-Jones said the day had been a "huge success". “I think a few people might have been put off by the weather, but it’s mostly held off. The sun has been out and we have all had a nice time".
We hope to continue the success of our first family funday event next year and hope the residents of Blaenavon will help to support the fundraising event in the future.
