Community fun day at National Academy

A COMMUNITY fun day is being laid on by the National Church Of England Academy in Hucknall next month.

The attraction will be at the school’s campus on Annesley Road on Saturday May 19.

Posters are springing up throughout the town to promote the event, which is free and designed to appeal to the whole family.

Sporting challenges will offer children the chance to test themselves against their parents.

There will also be dance displays, sport taster-sessions and live music.

The fire service, police and ambulance service will take along emergency vehicles and man stands offering safety and crime-prevention advice.

Food, table-top sales and stalls will also boost the fundraising efforts.

Pupils and staff at the school have joined forces to arrange the fun day, which is part of the school’s efforts to engage with the local community.
