There was a large turnout at King’s Park Church last week, as it held its fi r s t com­mu­nity fes­ti­val as a legacy to the Com­mon­wealth Games.

The fes­ti­val was held last Thurs­day, July 23, to co­in­cide with the an­niver­sary of the open­ing cer­e­mony of the Games last year, and the church now hope that this will take place ev­ery year on the same date.

There was a great turnout from the wider King’s Park com­mu­nity, with ev­ery­one en­joy­ing them­selves on the day with plenty of at­trac­tions avail­able to keep them en­ter­tained.

Rev­erend San­dra Boyd said: “The weather didn’t hold us back and we en­joyed the won­der­ful Gary the Ma­gi­cian, bouncy castle, Clyde Crafts, face paint­ing, burgers, co­conut shy, sponge throw­ing, jelly and ice cream.

“This year we had the spec­tac­u­lar Owl Magic and cho­co­late foun­tain that were just amaz­ing.

“This event could not have taken place with­out the sup­port of Glas­gow Life and their staff who were a fan­tas­tic help on the day, thanks to Sharon Younger. Also lo­cal busi­nesses were fan­tas­tic, with do­na­tions made from King’s Park Dairy, King’s Park Com­mu­nity Coun­cil, Shine, Cost Cut­ter, Life Style Ex­press, Premier Stores, Day-To­day Ex­press, Baba G and King’s Park Church.

“A very spe­cial thank-you to ev­ery­one who vol­un­teered and helped out to make this day pos­si­ble and thanks to ev­ery­one who came along and had a great day out on King’s Park Com­mu­nity.

“Hope to see you next year!”
