Fingers crossed that Wednesday, August 3rd will see the return of the spectacular Apex Park Play Day and organisers are appealing for volunteers and funding to make the event bigger and better than before after a two-year absence, due to the pandemic restrictions.
The last event, held in 2019 saw around 7,000 people attend the fabulous, free fun-filled day. In order to make it happen again this year, the voluntary committee are seeking helpers and funding to make the day possible. The Apex Park Playday is one of the largest in the country and allows parents to have a day-off from spending their hard-earned dosh to keep the kids entertained during the summer holidays, as well as allowing families to spend quality time together having a picnic and exploring one of Sedgemoor’s most beautiful parks.
Organiser Rosie Pike said: “There are over 40 free activities, and all of this needs people to help with planning of the event by being willing to be on the committee and attending occasional meetings in the run-up or to help on the day as marshals.”
The free activities also rely on grant funding being provided, so if you or your organisation would be willing to make a contribution to the day, either financially or by offering staff to help out, please contact email@example.com or 07867967087.
Sedgemoor District Council has contributed £5,000 towards the event, with Sedgemoor staff also attending the committee meetings to assist with key tasks in the months leading up to the event and to marshal on the day.
