Wow! What a party.
On Saturday 21 March Cambridge Joint Playscheme hosted a birthday party to celebrate 21 Years of providing a service to the children and families in Cambridgeshire.
We invited past and present users and staff and their families and were delighted to see so many friends at the party. We were blessed with glorious sunshine (and cloud at times) but the weather remained dry so that we could enjoy the garden area of Granta School and play on the Bouncy Castle.
The party kicked off with some outstanding magic tricks from Robert Gough, he really took our breath away bending forks and coins, along with some amazing card tricks!
The Silent Disco was a huge success with LOTS of dancing, and very loud singing much to the amusement of those not participating! The wonderful Vicky was on hand for glitter tattoos and face painting before guests headed into our photo booth with a variety of props for a quick snap!
After a delicious hot lunch followed by scrummy fresh doughnuts and a sing song around the birthday cake, we were very lucky to have some Disney royalty visiting us. Princesses Elsa and Rapunzel came to the party accompanied by Batman to play some wonderful party games with the children.
The party was finished off with our amazing Raffle with some outstanding prizes.
As the guests were leaving a past user of the scheme stopped me to express what a wonderful time he had had and said "so see you next year for another party"!
I hope that all the guests enjoyed the party as much as we did. We felt it really summed up the spirit of Cambridge Joint Playschemes.
