The sun was shining as hordes of families came to support the Headley Parkers at their first community playday this year in Headley Lane park. There was Easter fun with an egg hunt, prizes for the best Easter bonnet and egg colouring in competition. The CSV Play Rangers were out in force offering a massive hammock, football and badminton, face painting as well as painting huge egg bunting and making chick gardens to over 150 children and their families.

The Friends of Headley Lane Park group have been working hard on improving their community park over the last year and were recently successful in a bid to the Mayors fund for Bristol to provide events in the school holidays during 2014. The group are fundraising for new play equipment and are always looking for volunteers to help. Hannah Knight, Chair of the friends group, said “We are so happy to see this as a success and hope everyone can see how important the park is to our local community.”

Look out for future dates at www.headleyparkers.btck.co.uk and facebook: ‘Headley Parkers’ or ‘CSV Out2play Bristol’
