One of the exhibits at our 2004 Fun Day

Sunday 27th June, Brickfields Country Park - "Fur & Feathers" Wildlife Fun Day. 11am to 4pm.  Held again in the park, we had our best year yet, good weather and a very welcome return appearance of Millers Ark Animals Mobile Farm.  Our own brand Bullace jam was very popular selling out of our total stock in less than an hour.  The usual tombola, cake stall, hot and cold refreshments, quizzes, displays and stalls from local environment groups also did well.  The weather was excellent, but possibly a little too hot for the Birds of Prey who retired early for the day to prevent them getting stressed.

We were sponsored again this year by The Hire Center, in St. Josephs Road Aldershot, who kindly help out with a large diesel generator to provide the electricity for the Fun Day.  Without the help of local companies we would at times be unable to do some of our work in the park and also stage events like the Fun Day.  Our grateful thanks go to them.    Attractions also included –

Saturday 3rd / Sunday 4th July, Aldershot Army Show, Queens Parade, Aldershot.  Owing to organisational problems for this event (run this year by - Event Essentials) - several local volunteer organisations and charity groups, Brickfields included, were not able to attend this years show.  It would appear that paperwork allowing site access, apparently sent out did not arrive "correctly".  Stand space allocated remained unused.

Sunday 18 July RSPCA Seventh Annual Gala Day & Fun Dog Show. Held again this year at The Mytchett Center, with the usual dog show, dog agility show, craft stalls, charity stalls, bar, hot & cold food, refreshments, bouncy castle, Etc.  This years event was not as well attended as in previous years, possibly due to the change in date from August forward to July.  Still we had a good day meeting old friends and regular visitors.
