Edenbridge Celebration Day...Success...!
Kent
 

The hot summer weather at the weekend brought out the crowds to the Edenbridge Celebration Day event, local residents and many from outlying towns and villages came to have a pleasurable day out in the park with their families and friends.

Many locals who have lived on the two estates since they were built 40 and 50 years ago, came to  Stangrove Park, by the Leisure centre to enjoy the carnival atmosphere.

For those who made the most of the celebration came prepared bringing food, drink, chairs and blankets to laze the day away, watching the fun and relaxing with a picnic in the spacious and beautifully tended park lawns.

While the sun shone down on the crowds enjoying themselves, musicians from the  Rockhouse Band gave the crowds an exceptional volley of famous hits from the 50's and 60's.

Young and old alike tapped their feet, shook their bodies and hips to the sounds from the band, as they played a succession of some of the greatest sounds from those “good old days” of Rock n' Roll.

Edenbridge Celebration Day...Success...!
 

They certainly kept the sound alive and the crowds  rockin' with their amazing performances of such great and brilliant hits as...Route 66, Whole Lotta Shakin', Bony Moroni, Johnny Be Good, Living Doll, Move It, Singin' The Blues, King of the Road, High Heeled Sneakers...and many more.

When the band took a well deserved break, DJ “Dave” from Edenbridge carried on with the modern sounds of music today, a different contrast to Rock n' Roll, but the crowds loved it the same.

There was a great array of stalls selling home and locally produced food, ranging from cheeses, wines, bread,  meats, dried fruits, cakes, vegetables, honey, jams, chutneys, pickles, and such delights as specially made cakes and sweets for children.

The days events were clearly enjoyed by all, as children had a fun time trying their agility, grip and balance on the climbing wall, children queued up to enter the huge lazer playtime inflatable, or throw wet sponges at the face through the hole, there was an assortment of different games that were played by the children as well as their parents, judging by the smiles and laughter they all had a great time.

Many stalls were scattered around the park offering advice and promoting their clubs, societies and services.

The Kent Fire & Rescue Service was offering advice regarding the importance of fitting smoke alarms, fire prevention and safety measures.

Kent Police, combined with the local community police officers generously gave away treats and “goody bags” to many smiling children who visited their mobile office.

Edenbridge Children's Centre had its own stall, with many parents asking for information and advice. 

The other stalls were...The Astor Youth Centre, Bridges, Sevenoaks – Out of reach- get fit and well, Edenbridge Youth Forum, Kent Youth Service, Stangrove Area Community Action Group.

Other events that took place was a fancy dress competition for children, and the Wild Wing Arts put on an excellent display of “Play in a Day”on the stage.

As the days celebrations slowly came to a end and the final sounds from the Rockhouse Band were played out, many people expressed their delight at such a wonderful day out in perfect surroundings, thanking the many organisers that made their own time available to put on this marvellous celebration.

The residents of Edenbridge, the organisers, stall holders, participants and to those who were present, would like to express their thanks and gratitude to the many people who supported this great celebration for the town...
