We held our 14th annual Kids' Fun Fair Day on Sunday 6 August this year and it was a great success, attracting around 1500 people and raising over £300 towards the work of the Friends of Canons Park.
Not only did our ever-popular kids' fun fair keep the kids busy but this year saw the return of two other popular features - the big brass band, which played during the afternoon, and the fun 'dog contest' (sponsored by Goddard Veterinary Services of Whitchurch Lane), where owners could enter their pooches for a variety of categories such as Best Groomed Dog and 'Dog with the Waggiest tail'. There was yoga for all abilities in the George V Memorial Garden and a fascinating, free Herb Walk by Varsha of Vanaspati. Kids and adults alike loved the Storytelling Walk by Claudia Mernick - a gentle walk with sights and stories woven into the history of the park.
