Police in Pontypridd are gearing up to host a Family Fun Day on Thursday, August 21st.
The event starts at 10am and will finish at 4pm.
Ynysangharad Park, Pontypridd, provides the perfect setting for the event which will be totally free for families. The park will be jammed-packed with something for everyone to do. Children and their families will be given a unique chance to get up close and personal with South Wales Police horses and get behind the wheel of a real police vehicle. A make-shift arena will host an entertaining programme of displays including one from South Wales Police dogs and their handlers, and a falconer and their bird of prey.
Local West End hopeful, Samantha Spragg, who recently performed at Ponty in the Park, will also take centre stage to treat the crowds to some Disney classics. This will be music to the ears of Anna and Elsa, stars of Disney’s latest firm favourite, Frozen, who have promised to turn up along with South Wales Police’s very own mascots, Billy Blue and Tarion the dragon. There will be a farm-yard petting zoo, bouncy castles, and face painting and much more to keep everyone occupied
This public event will start at 10am and finish at 4pm – entry to the event and all the entertainment is free.
The main access will be via the bridge over the River Taff to the park from Taff Street, Pontypridd. People can buy food and drink at the event, and some vendors will be selling some low-cost items for children, but there will be lots of freebies to take home too.
Sergeant Debbie Brown, said:
“It’s all coming together now, and we can’t wait. There will be so much for people to do and most importantly it won’t break the bank because we have made sure that nearly everything is subsidized. We are doing everything we can to ensure it’s a fun-filled day – hopefully the sun will be shining too. All proceeds from the event will go to two charities: 2 Wish Upon A Star, a charity which was set up to raise funds for bereavement support for parents in south Wales, will benefit, as will the Glamorgan Mission for the Deaf.”
