Friends and families basked in the sun at the Slough Polish Association’s children’s day yesterday (Sunday).
Live Polish music was blasting from the stage at Polish Club Slough in Church Lane as people enjoyed drinks from the bar and barbecued burgers, while youngsters had fun trying out the inflatable assault course, go-karts and bungee-trampolines.
Ola Kieltyka, 33, from Slough, said: “So far it’s been good, the weather’s been great and there’re all these attractions for the kids.
“Polish culture is good, sometimes we’re too busy with work to meet up, but when we Polish come out we stick together.”
Other attractions that proved a hit was a police car, brought in by a police officer and PCSO from Slough Police Station, and a military display with an air-rifle firing range.
A giant inflatable bowel made by Inflatable Body Organs (IBO) was presented by Macmillan Cancer Support and Slough Clinical Commissioning Group, with information on bowel disease.
Macmillan used the opportunity to encourage people at the fair to get regular bowel cancer screenings as part of their awareness campaign.
