Beacon Park’s Fun Day round up and photos

Ranger Ted and friends

Hundreds of children and their families flocked to Beacon Park on Wednesday 7 August to enjoy the Fun Day.

Organised by Lichfield District Council, there were plenty of happy faces at this year’s Fun Day, with a range of games and activities on offer, such as giant inflatables, a miniature steam train and stalls.

There was also a barefoot walk, rides on a carousel, craft activities, target games and much more to have a go at.

The Teddy Arena, where children competed in teddy themed races, was a highlight of the day. Children, along with teddy bears, took part in races, including ted and spoon, ted on the head and teddy wanging. There was also a best in show competition to find the ugliest, scruffiest and best dressed teddy bears. And, to top off the bear-themed fun, the park’s giant teddy mascot, Ranger Ted, also made a special guest appearance.

Councillor Liz Little, Cabinet Member for Recycling & Leisure, said: “Beacon Park was packed with children and their families for our 2019 Fun Day. Well done to everyone who competed in the teddy races and entered their teddies into the best in show competition, and thank you to the parks team for making the day such a success.”

There is plenty to do at Beacon Park over the summer. On top of a summer story trail available every day of the holidays, on most days children can have a ride on a donkey and a go on pedalos on the boating pool, enjoy bouncy fun, play a round of crazy golf or foot or disc golf and more.
