Ardeer Community Playground Grand Opening and Carols in the Park
We held a celebratory Opening Ceremony event of the Ardeer Community Playground and Park on Tuesday 2nd December 2008. This event was held in conjunction with our annual Christmas Carols in the Park event to celebrate the work of our community in redeveloping our local park. The event involved children from our two local primary schools, two local secondary schools and local kindergarten. Approximately 700 people attended. Rod Quantock was the Master of Ceremonies for the event, which included fireworks, a sausage sizzle, a tour of the park and playground, performances of Christmas carols by the school students and children, and the opportunity to hang a home-made decoration on the wishing tree.
