Goldsworth Community Event Had a Big Pull

Community Event at Goldsworth Had a Big Pull

Spent a lovely few hours this afternoon at the Goldsworth Park Big Pull.  This fantastic community event was organised by the Goldsworth Police Team and supported by Goldsworth Park Community Assocation, Surrey Fire and Rescue, Woking Council and Waitrose.

The centre-piece of the event was a competition to pull a police van around Goldsworth Park lake.  The Waitrose team triumphed with Woking Council staff the runners up.  The much fancied firefighters team came in last (but were two men down on the day).

It was great to see all the Lib Dem councillors for Goldsworth and Horsell taking part in the day, including Amanda and Denzil Coulson with their new baby daughter, Bryan Cross, Ian Eastwood on the GPCA stall and yours truly of course.

Children were well catered for with a bouncy castle, inflatable slide, obstacle course, drawing and visits from Peppa Pig and and elephant.  The police offered the opportunity to sit on a police bike and to create a bookmark with your own fingerprint.

Adults could pick up safety tips on burglary prevention, avoiding fire and getting bicycles security marked.

There was an ice-cream van, cakes from Waitrose and burgers and sausages on sale.

The sunny weather added to the occasion and everyone appeared to have a wonderful time.
