ROBIN HOOD DAY
On Saturday 6th July BRoW4 had a gazebo at Hinchingbrooke Country Park’s Robin Hood Day. Children got to meet some of the popular characters from the famous story, visit the Sheriff of Nottingham’s Castle, and watch the Disney version of the film, as well as play games such as our popular jar tombola, archery and more!
Sunday 7 July 2019
Sunday 7th July was the day of the Ely Aquafest. It was a lovely sunny day, which meant that those people taking part in the river events dried off quickly. Anna had lots of fun watching the home-made rafts racing along the river!

Saturday 17 & Sunday 18 August 2019
Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th August was the popular Ramsey 1940’s weekend, where lots of people get into the 1940’s spirit by dressing up in the outfits of the time. This group of soldiers looked like they were having fun playing cards!

LITTLE GRANSDEN AIR SHOW
Sunday 25th August was the annual Little Gransden Air Show, where some very brave people jumped out of airplanes to entertain the crowds! Some, like this one, displayed flags and others performed tricks while releasing coloured smoke and making patterns in the sky. The weather was fantastic, and it was the perfect end to the summer season.
