Families' afternoon of fun in the snow

FAMILIES braved wintry conditions to enjoy an afternoon of Easter fun at Eastfield Park.

Despite sleet and snow, between 40 and 50 people attended last Sunday’s event, organised by the Friends of Eastfield Park in aid of Cynthia Spencer Hospice.

Linda Martin, co-ordinator of the Eastfield and Headlands Neighbourhood Partnership, said: “This was the first Easter event held on the park by the group, and although the weather meant we had to cut back on some of the activities, the event went well.

“The Friends of Eastfield Park are organising a series of events throughout the year to encourage more use of this beautiful park.”

The next event is a sport-themed activity day and will be held in June. To find out more about the work of Friends of Eastfield Park, contact Linda Martin on Northampton 237866.
