King’s Park gearing up for games party
King’s Park Church is not slowing down for the summer, with one big event coming up on the back of their Great Get Together last month.
The church is hosting its fourth annual community festival on Monday, July 24.
First held in 2014 when the church held a Queen’s Baton party, the gala event is part of King’s Park’s Commonwealth Games legacy.
Activities will include bouncy castles, face painting, crafts, coconut shy, jelly and ice-cream, hot dogs, hamburgers and a magician.
Owl Magic will also make an appearance with their magnificent birds.
Rev Sandra Boyd said: “No matter the weather, although we have been extremely lucky in the past, there will be fun and games in abundance.
“Why not entertain the children during the holidays by bringing them along and enjoying some time together with your friends and neighbours from King’s Park and beyond?
“There will also be a community questionnaire, asking local people what King’s Park Church can do in the local area for children, teenagers and adults.
“Please take two minutes to complete this as King’s Park Church is here to serve our local community and everyone in it. “I look forward to seeing you all there.” The church held the Great Get Together jointly with King’s Park Community Council on June 18.
Fine weather meant the picnic was held outdoors.
Community singing took place, along with a Glasgow quiz, while a fire engine proved a real hit with local children.
The event was held to mark the memory of murdered MP Jo Cox.
Rosemary Kidd, chairwoman of King’s Park Community Council, said: “The children had lots of fun finding out some answers to the quiz, sitting in the fire engine and operating the hoses, with the help of the firemen of course. “The church gardens were well watered. “Lots of fun was had by all on this very special tribute to Jo Cox. “Thanks to everyone who came along to make it such a joyous time together.” Do not miss next week’s Reformer for a special picture feature on the Great Get Together event.
