Well on 28th July 2012, it was time for the 3rd annual Kinfest at Southview! This time over 30 families attended;with more coming for days during the week!
Thanks to the kind donations of several companies and individuals it lived up to the promise of being the best yet!
On Saturday, as was now a tradition, the families gathered at Shelly's caravan for the distribution of Goody bags for the children along with some pocket money for rides and a family bag of treats.
On Sunday, we held a Carvery at the hotel. Southview kindly let us have exclusive use of their function room and their staff did a wonderful job of feeding us all and providing the kids with an ice-cream treat. The meal finished, water pistols were given out to all the children (old and young) for a bit of fun later! (although some could not wait that long!)
Wednesday, it was everyone down to the beach - Not for the faint hearted!! Braving the wind and occasional rain, we all went down there armed with buckets, spade, kites and a picnic! Fun was had by all!
Thursday was a BBQ and Family Fun day. The older children did a wonderful job with face painting for the younger ones, whilst the men stood over the BBQs cooking whilst the women chatted!
Friday was time for our very special guest Malcolm - a Martial Arts Instructor who kindly gave up his time to join us and the children loved it! Charlie Muddles did his magic show and gave out balloon animals. We also had a raffle, Treasure Hunt, Bubble wands and more to raise funds for next year. We also had our awards but unfortunately British weather intervened and the Awards ceremony had to be cut short!
Finally, THIS is why we do it!!
