RUGBY UNION: Minis festival is huge success at new ground
Spalding welcomed more than 100 players from Chelmsford for a minis festival and fun day at the new ground on Drain Bank North.
Under-7s and under-8s all enjoyed a morning of tag rugby while the older groups (under-9 to 12) also played.
This was followed by a bouncy castle, bouncy slide, train rides, egg and spoon race, obstacle course, barbecue, cake and sweet stall, bar, tea and coffees for all the families to take part in the fun day.
Minis co-ordinator Peppa Saunders said: “This was a good start to trial out the new ground.
“It has taken a lot of teamwork and volunteers to get this accomplished.
“My thanks go out to everyone to help make this happen.
We look forward to hosting many more activities at the new ground.
“The day proved to us that this has definitely been achievable.
“Thanks to Liz and Colin Kelly from Chelmsford for choosing Spalding for their fun day.
“We look forward to hosting many more activities at the new ground.”
