Funshine Days are over for the summer but residents of Bognor Regis are still marvelling at their success.
Throughout August, events have been taking place on the Bandstand every weekday. The themed events included skateboarding, arts and crafts and Punch and Judy. Funshine Days are held every summer and are hosted and organised by Bognor Regis Town Council.
Policy and resources committee chairman Cllr Matt Stanley said at Monday’s meeting of the town council:
“The Funshine Days were a real success. There were a lot of children enjoying themselves.
“I was there when the sandcastle competition was taking place and it seemed to do really well. It was a really good use of the bandstand.”
This year’s Funshine Days were hugely successful despite the unprecedented bad weather earlier in the month.
Town council events organiser Kerstin Fitzpatrick said:
“Unfortunately, the H2O week was hampered with exceptionally bad weather and a number of days had to be cancelled and rebooked for later in the programme.
“The remainder of the days were very well attended and we had lots of positive feedback from many of the families that came to enjoy them. This year, we returned Funshine Days to its historical format of four themed weeks after public demand when the programme was altered to two weeks in 2018.”
