The team at Golden Hill Sports Ground are getting ready for their special 10th Party in the Park on Saturday, September 17.

The fun begins at 1pm when visitors can experience a tethered hot air balloon ride, a team bath race - get your entry forms in now! - bubble football and a climbing wall. There will be a live music stage with great local acts, displays of drumming, Tae Kwon-do, Zumba, as well as a disco dome to show off your best moves. The event finishes with a magnificent firework display at 8pm.

Organiser, Suze Scott said: “Party in the Park’s (PITP) purpose is to repay the ground purchase loan - and we are nearly there! The loan should be cleared in August 2017. 

“All future events funds will then help to start build funds for the next project - the renovation and development of the pavillion. 

“Everyone at Golden Hill Sports would like to say a big thank you to all those people that have come along and supported PITP over the years & making it such a success & we would like to invite them all back again this year along with anyone who has never been before to help us celebrate the 10th anniversary of this annual event.”

PITP was created by the Golden Hill committee in 2007 as a way of both meeting the financial obligations of the Ground Purchase Loan and giving something back to the community who helped the registered charity (Golden Hill Sports) to purchase the ground. The event, which was set up with the aim of jointly raising funds with the community, has helped raise well over £50,000 in the nine events held so far, with in the region of £12,000 being raised last year alone.

It is an event that truly brings the community together and has attracted more than 3,000 people during the course of the day in the past. 

The team behind PITP are hoping to raise £12,000 profit from this year’s event. All funds go to the registered charity GHS whose charitable objectives are the protection and well being of the sports field and provision of sport for the membership, which is open to everyone.

Party in the Park will take place at Golden Hill Sports Ground, 29 Wimbledon Road BS6 7YA, on Saturday 17 September, from 1pm - 8.15pm.
