FoSJP’s First Birthday Party – Sunday 6th May 2007
FoSJP celebrated its first birthday in style, with Morris Dancers, a Marionette show, storytelling sessions, a mobile climbing wall, traditional games, parachute games, and face painting among the many attractions during an afternoon at the Park.
At the History Stall, visitors had a chance to record their memories of the Park on video, with the help of the Southampton University History Society. This was a real success and thoroughly enjoyed by all – for example, Mrs Hazel Crates brought along some interesting photographs from about 1930 of her grandfather’s dairy delivery truck, featured in the Shirley Carnival and pictured in the Park.
