Little steps nursery were in store with one of the Bananas in Pajamas. The children loved shaking his hand and parents learnt about the free places at the nursery for 3-4 year olds.
Halesowen & Hagley Farmers Club, Annual Countryside Show, Dawn from Asda Bromsgrove and myself were there to lend a hand during the day. Fantastic weather and cheep entry ensured we ran out of entry bracelets (1200 by 1.30pm) and had to use the good old marker pen. Can't wait for next year.
Yardley Fun Day. Sponsored by ASDA SMALL HEATH. We had great response from different organisations that were willing to come along. Leafy Shades animal rescue had to bring along some very tiny squirrels, as feeding time didn't stop during the day. 87th Bierton scouts came along and we had some delicious burgers and cakes. It was a little dull at times, but this didn't stop peoples enthusiasm during the day
Here is Harriet Blenkiron with a bear she donated to help raise funds for British Heart Foundation. With name the bear and various activities throughout the day we raised £150.00. We also had a table supporting Help Harry Help Others, selling bracelets, pens and trolley tokens. With help from Sandra Grice from Asda Shirley the day went brilliantly.
Music in Motion came along to help entertain the crowds at Yardley Fun Day, with some sign singing. We encouraged people to join in and had great response from the audience. Most people had never seen anything like it before.
This is Liz Carton and myself opening the Yardley Fun Day in Oaklands Park. Fun for all the family at very low prices just like in our stores. From the climbing wall to learning circus skills everyone was included, young or old.
Last night I went to present Acocks Green St John Ambulance volunteers with a certificate of thanks. Phil, Alex and David came along for the weekend along with 87th Bierton Road Scouts, to show their support for HELP FOR HEROES. HELP FOR HEROES sent everyone involved a lovely certificate. Well done everyone.
Today and for the next few days we welcome PC Stuart Toogood and his Young adults from The Prince's Trust into Small Heath store. They are bagpacking for their new project. Watch this space for an update later on in the coming months.
