There was great football on show from all teams participating and lots of smiles had and memories made playing on Boundary Park!
Chaddy the owl was out and about this month as he made his way down too join in with all the fun of the coronation weekend.
Chaddy also made his way down to Oasis Academy Clarkfield where he had a busy day meeting all pupils and visiting all classrooms as a part of the prize won at the Oldham Headteachers conference as well as making an appearance at Friezland where he took part in the sports day. Chaddy joined in all activities with the egg and spoon race being a favourite on the day!

We visited Violet Hill to restart the programme and the residents had a brilliant time playing virtual badminton on the Nintendo Switch, helping to keep them active and overall having a good time socialising.
