  Sima Stannage from Sima’s Action Kids will be one of the many people donating their time to help the Maidenhead Bridge Rotary Club provide local families with a fun-filled afternoon of free entertainment at Grenfell Park on March 30th. She will provide high-energy dance-sessions for the under 10s.

“It’s fantastic taking part in family events in Maidenhead especially when the event is accessible to everyone and doesn’t cost a penny. I love my job and I am very lucky to be able to support the local community by just offering my time in such an enjoyable way,” says mother of two, Mrs Stannage.

Mrs Stannage urged local families to support the event: “Come down to this special fun day and do some singing, dancing, story-telling, games and imaginative play with me. You’ll be stepping back in time millions of years and plodding around like a dinosaur one moment, and then, reaching for the stars the next. Together we’ll have a great party!”

 During the event, there will also be an Easter egg hunt, face painting, bunny mask painting and various many other children’s activities, such as magic carpet storytelling with Ruth Humphreys.

With some funding from the Louis Baylis Charitable Trust, one of the main aims of the event is to bring more people to the park, promoting it to a wider audience.

 “We recognise that in the current climate, people are struggling and for some families, it’s a real challenge finding the money to pay for a day out for the whole family, says Lisa Hunter from the Maidenhead Bridge Rotary Club, “We would like our event to help promote healthier lifestyles and encourage people to take care of our local parks.”

The Easter Family Fun Day on Saturday, 30th March will run from 11am until 3pm.

About Grenfell Park
Grenfell Park was the first public park in Maidenhead and is aimed at younger children and families. It was awarded a Green Flag Award in July 2012 for the first year in recognition of achieving the national standard for parks and green spaces in England & Wales. The back of the park was donated to the town in 1897 by Lord Desborough (William Grenfell) to mark Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. The park has a number of unusual trees, the seeds of which were provided by Lord Desborough after travelling the world. The steep wooded banks and large flat grassed area to the rear of the park form a natural amphitheatre.

Where is the park? Grenfell Park is located in Grenfell Road round the corner from Maidenhead train station (SL6 1EX
