Refurbishment of Wood Street Plaza & Launch Party

After a long wait, the refurbished Wood Street Plaza park and play area will be re-opened on Saturday  19th April 2014.

And the even better news is: Wood Street First’s events committee is organising a party from 12 noon to 3pm to celebrate!

The official ceremonials will be performed by clown, balloonist and magician Uncle Rabbie (star of several recent Wood Street Plaza celebrations). Rabbie will be joined by mascots Minnie & Mickey.

All children at the opening ceremony will get a free Easter Egg.

There will also be children’s competitions for Easter art and fancy dress. For the Easter art competition, children under 12 can bring along a picture, or draw one at the party itself – there are some great prizes to be won. In the fancy dress competition, children under 12 are invited to come along in a fancy dress costume of their choosing. There are £30 of Argos vouchers to be won.

Other attractions include:

  • Music
  • Table top sale by local charity Significant Seams
  • Cake stall
  • Craft and soft play activities
  • Free tea/coffee for grownups
  • B.B.Q  &  salad stall
  • Street entertainers
  • Free gifts and goodies

Alongside the festivities, a group of local architects will be launching a Wood Street Ward development design project
