A record-breaking number of visitors enjoyed Wellingborough Homes’ annual fun day on Saturday (September 14).
More than 1000 people turned up to enjoy the event, the sixth annual fun day to be organised by the housing provider, at Thompson Court and Tithe Barn in the town centre.
The day-long fun day not only featured lots of family attractions, such as games, stalls and a bouncy castle, but also a wealth of photos, documents and artefacts from Wellingborough Museum to celebrate the history of the borough.
As well as games and free food to enjoy, there was entertainment from local people including a children’s puppet show and magician, Wellingborough Gospel Choir, classical Indian dancing, a performance of ‘Phantom of the Opera’ as well as a DJ and singers.
Wellingborough Homes, which owns and manages more than 4,500 homes across the borough, hosts a fun day every year to bring the community together and provide free activities for all to enjoy.
Dale Thompson, Head of Neighbourhood Services at Wellingborough Homes, said: “Everyone had a fantastic time at the fun day and we were delighted to see so many people support and enjoy the event, which is firmly entrenched in our calendar now.
“We had lots of positive feedback from people who loved the variety of activities and entertainment, which is great.”
