‘Life to the Max’ in Mach!
4th Diocesan Fun Day in Machynlleth, Saturday 9th May
‘Life to the Max’ is the title of the Diocese of Bangor’s 4th annual Diocesan Fun Day and Celebration, which is being held Machynlleth on Saturday 9th May at The Plas, Machynlleth. The Plas will be a hive of activity from 11am until the Celebration, which starts at 3pm.
A team of local people including Canon Kath Rogers and the Rev’d Roland Barnes have been working with Diocesan staff to plan the day, which offers fun for people of all ages.
There will be 2 stages featuring performances by several local schools, a fire-eater, local musicians, a rap artist, Zumba Jan, Abergynolwyn Band and Bongo Clive.
Looking forward to the day, Canon Kath Rogers said, ‘It is wonderful that this special day is being held in Machynlleth. It has been a lot of work for many people, but I’m sure it is all going to be worth it. Obviously we’re praying for good weather, but I would just like to encourage people to come and enjoy the day.’
The Right Rev’d Andrew John, Bishop of Bangor said, ‘This event is a highpoint for the whole Diocese – an occasion of family fun and worship. It is really important that we are bringing this significant event to Machynlleth. It is a special place and people will be coming from all parts of our Diocese. It is an opportunity for people to be together and have a wonderful experience.’
All activities are free of charge and will take place inside and outside the Plas, including a number of inflatables, storytellers, craft activities, face painting, gyroscope, bouldering trailer, a sheep trail, Teddy Horsley, pedal karts and a host of stalls and stands from local churches and community groups etc. In addition to the Plas Café, there will be an ice cream van and hot food van.
