Family fun in May for Ealing 135 Spring fair
The Ealing 135 Spring fair, a family favourite, has a new location in Walpole park and it’s going to be our biggest event yet. This year it will take place on Saturday 14 May from 1-4 pm, from its new location at the Rickyard building and the surrounding area, next to the Children’s playground in Walpole Park. The Seaside themed Spring fair will be a fun day for all the family. It’s open to all and free entry.
There are all the games you expect from a traditional fair including hook-a-duck, lucky dip, tin can alley, splat-the-rat to keep the kids entertained. There will also be crafts, face-painting, a bouncy castle and a fancy dress competition. There will be plenty to keep the adults occupied too: a brilliant raffle, a grown up (boozy) tombola and a selection of some of Ealing’s best local businesses and entrepreneurs showcasing their talents from the stalls. Alongside all of the above an Ealing 135 event would not be the same without its legendary cake stall and the free taster sessions provided by children’s entertainers.
Ealing 135 is a friendly local network run by and for parent and carers in the borough of Ealing. We are run entirely by volunteers drawn from within our membership. We organise and run local family friendly events including the Spring fair, play sessions, parent and carer groups, action songs and rhymes sessions, Nearly new sales, Halloween parties, Christmas parties, adults socials, the list goes on! .
A snapshot of the events planned over the next few months include a teddy’s bears picnic, Saturday craft making session, mega train set event and den building. If you are a young family, join the 135 group, for just 15 pounds a year, as it gives you access to all this and more, such as discounts from local businesses and a quarterly newsletter which includes an in depth weekly guide for local activities for pre-schoolers.
