I arrived at the Hunslet Club to see a large amount of families had already arrived for this fun day. But where were all the boys? Girls outnumbered them five to one.
There were as many inflatables as I had ever seen at a Gala or Fun Day. These included the Lazerquest Maze, a 30ft Pirate Slide, an Assault course, Moon Walk Space Dome, Crazy Golf, Toddler SeaWorld Adventure and a Bouncy Castle.
There was disco playing music as I went round the various activities. Live Singers were to be in the clubhouse at 4pm, but I had gone home by then.
There were not many stalls I’m afraid, barring the Tombola. I paid my £1 for tickets, hoping to win a bottle, but with no luck I’m afraid. The barbecue looked tempting, but thinking of my waist line, I decided not to have a burger.
I was impressed by the Gymnastics on the Gym mat, young people doing summersaults and all manner of things going on. Meanwhile on the Rugby pitch, there was a Parents v Coaches match going on. Again like the Birds of Prey at Middleton Park, there was to be a display late in the day.
I was driving, so declined the offer of a pint at the bar. Probably no real ale anyway, which is the norm in clubs nowadays.
