Ilkeston - Arena's Serve Day
w/e 15 July 2018
All of this week's pictures were taken with a Kodak DX6490

Serve Day

There were many events held locally on Saturday July 14th including Ilkeston Hospital's Summer Fayre, the opening of the West Hallam Well Dressing Festival, Beeston's Carnival and the one we're concentrating on here, the Arena Church's Serve Day.
Beauvale Drive Park

The Church took over the Beauvale Drive Park at Cotmanhay to serve the community with a family fun day. This involved a "Big tent with children’s games, crafts, bouncy castle, free refreshments, face painting, sports and children’s entertainer."
Peter Presto

The entertainer was Peter Presto who kept the children - and some adults - enthralled with his magic tricks.
Face Painting

Face painting involves a lot of concentration.
Bubble Blowing

In this technological age toddlers still find enjoyment in popping bubbles if someone will blow them for them,
Circus Skills

Circus skills like Spinning the Plate could be practised in an enclosed area.

Refreshments were served and all the children provided with a picnic lunch too.

Whilst the children were being entertained adults could sit and relax in the glorious weather.
Jumpers For Goalposts

Even the hot sunshine didn't stop many of the youngsters joining in with a game of football although I suppose they made their way home to watch the England World Cup game on TV later. After the disappointing result of that though they probably returned to the park to resume their game using jumpers for goalposts.

Volunteers all wore red T-shirts at the free event that was described as "A chance for Arena Church to love and serve the community." They certainly did that.
