LOCAL company 'Speed Welshpool' is holding a bank holiday fun day spectacular ‘Waterloo Fest’ on Sunday, August 26, at Waterloo Rovers FC to raise funds for the club and cancer charity Macmillan Cancer Support.
The event will open at noon and includes a number of family activities such as ‘Fun Olympics’ where eight teams from sports clubs and companies around the Welshpool area will compete in a series of entertaining challenges.
There will also be stalls, children’s rides, bouncy castle, rodeo bull and lots of other attractions.
Food and refreshments, including a licensed bar, will be available to purchase throughout the day and a number of bands will also be providing entertainment as the event continues into the night.
The locally sourced line-up includes: String The Marionette, Fourphit, Silent Blackout and The Locomotive, as well as solo performances from Steve Edwards and Rob Picken of Colour Sunday.
Speed Welshpool is a member of the Palletways Group, Europe’s fastest and largest delivery network for palletised freight. As part of the day Palletways will be supplying its hot air balloons which will soar into the sky above the Club’s ground.
This will include a giant green and yellow dragon balloon guaranteed to be a favourite among children.
George Edwards, from Speed Welshpool, said: “We’re really excited about the event as we guarantee it will be one to remember, particularly with the hot air balloons. It’s going to be an excellent day out for all the family with plenty going on to keep everyone entertained throughout the day. We’re hoping to raise lots of money for the Club and for Macmillan Cancer Support.”
Entry cost is £5 per adult and children will be able to enter for free, all proceeds will go to Waterloo Rovers FC and Macmillan Cancer Support.
Waterloo Rovers FC is based at Maes y Dre Recreation Ground just outside of the town centre.
