July started off very busy for BRoW4, with us attending six events within two weeks! We then had a couple of weeks that were event free, but as ever we have been very busy behind the scenes preparing for our next three (yes three!) BRoW4 events. More about these later.Our first event in July was Aquafest in Ely. BRoW4 took along our teddy tombola and a regular tombola, which kept us very busy, though we managed to find a few minutes to enjoy the demonstrations such as this battle.Friday the 5th saw us at our second school fete, making lots of children smile with our teddy tombola. The sun shone on us but there were some very dark clouds about. We had a very lucky escape as it poured once the event was over!Saturday the 12th we had a gazebo at the St Ives Carnival, where for the first time we had a lucky dip game as well as our teddy tombola. The lucky dip was a very popular choice with the children, so we will be making that a regular game. We were treated to many demonstrations through the day, including these pipers.Sunday the 13th was the day of the St Ives Music Festival, and BRoW4 got to enjoy many performances by local musicians. Our volunteers very much enjoyed the sunshine, the music and the relaxed atmosphere!Our last school fete this summer was held at Hartford Infant School on Friday the 14th. They had an old fashioned fair theme, with hoopla, hook a duck, coconut shy and more games for the children to enjoy. We just love the expression on this parent demonstrating to the children how to win!
Our last event in July was Unity in the Community, held on Saturday the 15th, which aims to bring together all the different ethnic groups that live in the area. We love the diversity of people that attended this event, as shown in this picture.As mentioned earlier, BRoW4 are busy organizing our next 3 big events, one of which takes place next month. It’s an underwater challenge for those who can scuba dive, as well as a family fun day so that everyone can attend and enjoy the day. We will be raising funds for the RNLI, who help so many people around the country every single day. We hope to see you there!The other two events aren’t taking place until next year, so we will give you more details about these in a future newsletter. Have a lovely summer!
