Emergency Services Fun Day at Arborfield
My Journey team were out in force at the Arborfield Emergency Services fun day on Thursday 26 October 2017. We shared an information stand with the community wardens, handing out flyers and snapbands/stickers to the extent that we ran out of our popular hi-vis animal stickers! Our smoothie bike was in constant use by children who loved pedalling, be it with their feet or hands (for the little ones whose legs weren’t long enough!) and many berry and banana smoothies were consumed (when we ran out of berries, the queue didn’t stop and towards the end children were even happy just drinking apple juice froth!).
Dr Bike was also busy doing puncture repair workshops with children (and parents) concentrating on plugging that hole in an inner tube! During the 6 hours, the weather changed from cloudy to dull and then came the constant drizzle… this didn’t deter the residents who kept on arriving to take advantage of the stalls till the very end.
A good day was had by all and the team went home for a rest, tired and damp but content!! We estimated we had interest in My Journey offerings from over 300 people during the day.
