Gilvenbank Park will once again host the annual North Glenrothes Community Council Fun Day on Saturday.

Preparations for the event are now almost complete with the majority of participants in place.

The community council has this year decided to host the fun day in June in the hope of better weather for the community event, which always proves successful in bringing people together.

A whole programme of fun activities are planned including the fun fair, Fife Falconry, Glenrothes Aeromodelling Club, music and face painting.

New to the fun day are the Fife Vintage Agricultural Machinery Club with their vintage tractors, the Fife animal dog training club and the Remus Equestrian Centre.

Collydean Primary’s signing for the deaf team will be present, and Mrs Gallway will be there with her stall for hearing dogs for the deaf.

The dancing display by last year’s outstandingly popular Ave Johnson’s Zumba dancers delighted everyone and their return is eagerly awaited.

The 4x4 specialist Mike Aitken will also be in attendance.

One special attraction this year is ‘Alexander the Great’. Craig Alexander is a well known entertainer from Edinburgh who enthrals people of all ages with his magic, balloon modelling, juggling and acrobatics.

His fame and popularity is spreading and soaring as seen on Channel 4 and ITV’s Good Morning.

One thing that organisers are currently short of this year are local charity stalls.

Morris Brown, vice chairman of the community council and organiser of this year’s fun day said: “Local charity stalls are always an attraction and I do hope for more. There is still time to contact me.”

Saturday’s family fun day event runs from noon.

Mr Brown added: “All in all, this should be one of the most spectacular Fun Days ever since these began.

“And it should be noted too that this Fun Day will take place in the north of Gilvenbank Park - entrance from Huntsmans Road across from Gilvenbank Hotel.”
