All fun and no sun indoors

Summer fun has gone under cover with bad weather hitting Bognor Regis.


This year’s Funshine Days organised by Bognor Regis Town Council were moved indoors during the week as rain and wind swept the seafront.


The poor conditions caused the music and movement workshops on Tuesday and Wednesday to be moved indoors to the Regis Centre’s studio from their usual location at the bandstand on the prom.


Friends and mothers Jemma Hepburn, from Aldwick, and Alyson Livesey, from Felpham, both saw Tuesday and Wednesday’s workshops advertised on Facebook. Jemma took her two daughters, aged ten and eight, and Alyson took her nine-year-old daughter.


Jemma said: “We came to the didgeridoo workshop and thought it was just brilliant. It was such a laugh and taught the children all about the instrument and where it comes from and to learn about breathing too.”


Wednesday’s workshop organisers, Itara and Andy Mason, pictured right, from Workshop for Schools, travelled from Birmingham to host the event.


Itara said: “We’ve been really busy, even with the relocation. I really enjoy seeing the kids’ faces and the excitement as they produce the music and try something new like the drums.”


Susan Robbins, a nanny from Middleton, took Rafaella, aged four, along for the morning. She said: “It’s great you can just pop in and out when you want and it’s available for all ages.”


The workshops are running throughout August with next week’s theme of performance.
