Churn fun day to take year's break
A POPULAR family event which celebrated its tenth anniversary last year is set to take a breather in 2013.
The Churn Family Fun Day has been a key event in Cirencester for the past decade and at its peak has attracted around 5,000 visitors to St Michael’s Park for the event.
Hosted by local charity, The Churn Project, the day gives families the chance to get out of the house and have some fun with a variety of arts and craft stalls, entertainment, toys and refreshments.
But now, organisers have announced the May event will not be going ahead this year to allow time to review the fun day’s format for 2014.
Anna Rarity, from The Churn Project, said they would be speaking with service users to see how the event could have a greater impact on the community next year and hoped to make it sustainable for another decade.
"The Fun Day began with just a few hundred people and a handful of stalls on a very wet May weekend," she said. "Last year we had 4,500 people walk through the gates and the event now includes some of the town’s leading organisations and community groups."
Consultations with the neighbourhood community groups and participants of The Churn Project's various groups will be held in coming months.
The charity is also keen to hear people's stories of what the Churn Family Fun Day means to them.
