St Athan Family Fun Day

28 July 2016

Saints, the newly established St Athan Parks Trust, will be running a family fun day on Friday 5 August, from 3pm to 7pm.


There will be lots of exciting activities including face painting, family games, crafts, football and sports.  Many activities are free of charge for all to enjoy. The Welsh Hawking Centre will also be showcasing their birds.  Refreshments, cakes, ice creams and burgers will also be on sale.

A successful volunteer training day took place on Tuesday 19 July with the Vale of Glamorgan Council’s Play Development and Sport Development teams, where volunteers got to grips with the fun day’s different activities and met over lunch.  It has really seen the local community coming together to host this fantastic Family Fun Day.

The trust has been set up to help raise funds for Parks in St Athan, with the play area at Lougher Place being a particular priority for the group, having had limited investment in recent years.

Other activities have been organised for the summer, as a result of feedback from the St Athan Community Mapping project, identifying a priority to organise more activities for children to take part in.

The Go Global Holiday Club for primary aged children at the Gathering Place runs from Monday 1 to Wednesday 3 August, from 10am to 12pm.  There will be lots of games, crafts, songs, bible stories and puppets. The cost is £2 per child.  For more information and to book a place, contact Deacon Sam on 01446 406262, or

Free Play Sessions at St Athan Community Centre, Glyndwr Avenue, will take place from Monday 15 to Wednesday 17 August, from 1pm to 3pm, with the Play Development Team.  Open access for 5 to 11 year olds.
