An action packed Activity Week hosted by St Paul’s Parish, Lisburn, proved so popular registration had to be suspended after the first two days!
Events ran from July 25-29, with activities from 6.30-8.30pm each evening. On the first night, around 120 kids checked in at the church hall to enjoy crafts, games, drama and stories and a host of other activities.
On the Tuesday night 146 children enjoyed a great night of crafts and football fun. Organisers were delighted with the response from families in the community, but to ensure the health and safety of children and the great team of leaders, had to close registration for the last three nights, taking only those registered on the Monday and Tuesday for the remainder of the week.
And it was a week which carried on at full throttle. Games and sport were the main theme of Wednesday night, while on Thursday there was street dance and a huge parachute.
Friday was a great night of family fun, face painting, doodlebugs, Sumo, bouncy castle, a visit from the Mayor and Lady Mayoress and a very successful BBQ.
Following the BBQ, the excess food was taken to the homeless in Belfast.
