Food and Fun – the Big Picnic

Today, Ellis Park in Oadby rang with chatter, laughter and music as the churches in Oadby played host to the local community. 1000 bags containing sandwiches, crisps and fruit juice were distributed to all who came. Each church was responsible for different activities and stalls encircling the park.

A “stage bus” (a converted double-decker) provided stage facilities on which different local groups, including schools and churches, performed their musical offerings. They were watched by people from many different backgrounds, and all ages, united in enjoying a good day out.

Everyone who came concluded that it had been a happy and successful time. Many prayers had been answered as the weather was dry and sunny. Hope to repeat it!
