Fun of the fair at seaside-themed fun day
A COCONUT shy, hook-a-duck and a tin-can alley were just some of the stalls on offer at a traditional seaside fun day.
Staff at Middleton Hall Retirement Village, near Darlington, were dressed in traditional fun fair costumes for the summer event, which was for residents, staff and their families.
Activities included a plastic pig race and tombola, while residents and staff could pose for a picture at the giant seaside postcard created by 19-year-old artist, Samantha Hunt, from nearby Middleton St George.
The event was part of Middleton Hall’s Living Well philosophy, which encourages residents to enjoy maximum health and well-being.
Audra Hunt, the retirement village’s Living Well manager, said: “Both young and older had a fantastic time. Games really brought back memories for the residents and everyone got the chance to have a go at something, no matter what their mobility levels.
“Years ago they would have taken a day trip to the seaside or a fun fair so the idea was to bring a bit of the seaside to them instead. It was so popular we’re looking to make it an annual event.”
