All The Skills return to Sunnyside Park

There is a saying that “the sun shines on the righteous” and shine it did on Sunnyside Park this weekend….

Tiger Carving in Sunnyside Park

This weekend All The Skills returned to Sunnyside Park, Great Lever, Bolton to be part of the annual community fun day. However, this year was extra special as the park has also secured funding to produce a wild flower garden and at the day there was live wood carving resulting in a fantastic tiger sculpture. The tiger was designed by local children and will be a focal point of the garden.

To celebrate the new flower garden Kate worked with local children to produce several large decorative flowers to be hung in the garden as well as individual sparkly/glittery  flowers to take home.

Sean and Naomi were kept busy helping residents young and old to master a variety of circus skills before sending everyone home with a balloon animal.

Let’s hope that despite Council cutbacks this event will continue to happen. As organiser Donnette Foster says,

“These days are all about getting the community out on the park having fun together…”
