Summer fun in Stratford Park
Stratford makes its mark on the summer festival season this Saturday (August 20) as it hosts a day for all the local community to get together for some free family fun.
People of all ages are invited to Stratford Park from 12pm to 4pm for a range of informative and recreational activities.
To give the event an up-to-date Stratford flavour, information on how to get involved in the 2012 Games will be available as well as giving residents the opportunity to have their say on the future of the Olympic Park which may be included as a contribution in its official audio guide.
Reports of “2012 the Musical” have also reached the Recorder’s ears but details are still to be confirmed.
Residents will have the opportunity to quiz their councillor and win �100 in shopping vouchers.

Entertainment on the day includes the Lithuanian Children’s Ballroom Dance School, a didgeredoo, a children’s mini play day, story telling, theatre, fashion shows, a bouncy castle, arts and crafts workshops and jewellery making.
Get active in the open air by taking part in yoga, zumba, karate, capoiera, or football for a kick about in the park.
