Sunday 6th September 2015, and the sun shone bright and clear on the 4th Parkinson’s Park Children’s Gala, encouraging a record turnout, with many new residents coming for the first time. Chereyl Durerden commented – “It was fab, we’re new to the area so this was a great introduction to Guiseley, we had fun!” Whilst, Sophie Smith said “ We have just returned from 3 years in Belgium, and it is lovely to see the park looking so well looked after; it is much improved. The gala was a lovely event in beautiful sunshine. Well done to all of you, and thank you very much.
Many children came dressed as historical characters, (although we are not sure about the dates for batman :-)) adding to the colour of the afternoon.
Thanks go to everyone who organized the event, helped or provided funds and sponsorship. One of the local councillors commented that “the number of family groups was noticeable, giving a real feeling of Community” – which is what the Friends of Parkinsons Park set out to achieve.
