Residents of the Revival estate, off Tadcaster Road, enjoyed their second annual family fun day on Sunday 16th July. The event was organised by the Revival Residents Community Association, with financial support from the Dringhouses & Woodthorpe Ward Committee. The event was also supported by Greenbelt, who are responsible for managing the green spaces on the estate, and a team from Tesco who ran a tombola stall.
Many local businesses generously donated prizes for the raffle, including the Co-op, Tesco, Ged Bell the butchers, the Marriott Hotel, Confident U, Lindsey Richardson personal trainer, Studio 76, Julie Mercer beautician and the Cross Keys pub on Tadcaster Road.
£170 was donated by Yorkshire Housing which was used to buy the spacehopper equipment which was a big hit with the children.
Cllr Stephen Fenton commented “The local volunteers who organised this fantastic event deserve a huge amount of credit. Their efforts have helped to bring the community together and create a positive atmosphere.”
The inflatable obstacle course was a hit with young and old alike!
