Loughor’s Parc Williams to host exciting fun day this Saturday, July 2nd

Swansea Labour councillor for Loughor Christine Richards is encouraging locals to come and join the fun at a fun day in Parc Williams, Loughor, this Saturday, July 2, from 12:30 to 5:30.

The fun day, organised by the Friends of Parc Williams volunteer group, will feature a host of activities, including tennis and basketball coaching for 11 to 18 year olds from 11am until 4pm, circus skills workshops, and rides and stalls from Holmes’ Fairground.

“It’s going to be a great day for all the family,” she said. “We are delighted to have Swansea City FC Community Trust running the tennis and basketball coaching, and Circus Eruption, who do so much good work in deprived areas and with children with disabilities, are running the circus skills workshops,” she said.

“The day opens with music from The Bus Pass Cowboys at 12:30, and we also have music from Loughour Town Band, the City of Swansea Pipe Band and the combined choirs of Tre Uchaf and Casllwchwr.”

She added that there will be a wide variety of stalls, ranging from fairy dresses to home baked cakes, plus a selection of vintage cars on display including a vintage police ‘panda’ car and a vintage Post Office van.

“We will also have the police, a fire engine and the coastguard lifeboat there, and the old town hall will be opening its doors so that people can see inside the building and talk to members of the Loughor Town Trust about its future.”

This will be the 7th fun day organised by the Friends of Parc Williams volunteer group, and Councillor Rochards expects it to be one of the best.

“I’m delighted that the Friends of Parc Williams have gone form strength to strength since forming in 2009 with the aim of making improvements to the park. The fun day shows what can be achieved when communities work together,” she said.
