Friends of Troopers Hill
Family Fun Picnic, 2011

Saturday 13th August 2011

A great afternoon. After a juggling workshop with Jacky from Circomedia and lots of deer antlers, fox masks and flying buzzards being made in our craft area; International Storyteller Cassandra led some exuberant storytelling featuring some of the same creatures.

Afterwards the balloons from Ashton Court put on a fantastic display, with many of the balloons passing low over the hill.

As a taster at the beginning of the weekend a balloon had landed on the hill on Friday morning. There were more balloons on the Sunday morning while on Sunday afternoon the hill was again crowded with people watching the Red Arrows display, but unfortunately it was too windy for the balloons to fly.

Craft materials for this event were purchased with a grant from the Public and Commercial Services Union.
