I WOULD like to thank everyone for the superb effort that went into making our first North Camp Fun Day such a success.

Thanks in particular to Debbie Whitcombe, the North Camp regeneration officer at Rushmoor Council, and to the staff of Pippins Playgroup who are based on the Queen's Road Park where most of the action took place.

Congratulations to all the children who dressed up and paraded through the streets to the park, and the bank (who stepped in at the last minute) and also to the wonderful weather!

It was a great day and many families brought along their picnics and stayed and watched all the events in the arena until 4pm.

My special thanks to all the traders who donated gifts for the giant tombola stall.

Cllr Diane Bedford (St Mark's Ward), Somerset Road, Farnborough.
