SCHOOL-holiday boredom for Hucknall youngsters was blown away by a spectacular Parkfest event, packed with fun-filled action this week.
The five-day attraction flooded Titchfield Park in the town with hundreds of children eager to try their hands at activities ranging from BMX-biking to crafts.
Activities ran from 2 pm to 9 pm on Monday and then 4 pm to 9 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and yesterday (Thursday). The fun draws to a close today (Friday).
Football competitions have been held, alongside contests in inline-skating, skateboarding and BMX-ing.
A climbing wall tested visitors’ heads for heights, while youngsters took part in tug-of-war competitions. There was even the chance to pelt youth workers with wet sponges in the stocks.
Drumming workshops hit the high notes, a mini Formula 1 grand prix in battery-powered cars revved up the action and circus-skills demonstrations and workshops proved popular.
Youngsters also donned padded suits to try their hand at sumo-wrestling.
Lesley Froggatt, who is a Notts County Council youth worker for Ashfield and organiser of Parkfest, said: “This is the first year we have held these events. They have proved really popular.
“It was a chance to banish any school-holiday boredom that might have set in already.”
