ANCHO’s 9th annual Community Fun Day was held at Redburn Community Centre, Irvine, recently. A combination of fun and access to a wide range of information about services and initiatives within the area, it was attended by almost 200 local people.
There was the usual bouncy castles, Fitba4u ran ‘Beat the Goalie’, the KA Activator Van was on-site, and, inside the hall, there was an extensive range of stalls giving health, money and other advice and tips.
There was Laughter Workshops, a Vox Box for people to have their views filmed, a Balloon Race, a facepainter, a Basketball competition, Throw the Sponge, and local company Hoots Owls introduced youngsters to their wildlife.
And, most excitingly, our Future Proof youth theatre team put on two outstanding live performances – Live Street Theatre like Irvine have never seen!
