The return of a family fun day proved great success bringing smiles, laughter and heaps of joy to Harold Hill last weekend.

Harold Hill Fun Day, organised by the Harold Hill Bowls Club, offered activities ranging from archery, provided by the Havering Disabled Association, to children’s tennis lessons with the Havering Tennis Club.

There were also displays by three local majorette groups at the event, held in Broxhill Park, as well as the chance for children to try their hand at some bowling.

Barry Daffern, 67, organiser said: “The best part of the day was the 834 children who seemed to have a really good time.

“We also gained four new members. For us, it was a great success.”

Volunteers from the Bowls Club helped the day run smoothly.

Glorious sunshine added to the enjoyment, with Mr Daffern adding “it was the only thing I was worried about!”

Other entertainment provided on the day included pony rides, a display of classic cars, a steam train, barbecue and other refreshments.

The fun day was held in the hope of filling the void of the Harold Hill Festival, which last ran in Central Park in 2013.

The club hopes to hold another family event next year, but wants to make it something a bit different.
