Knobbly knees, winkles and surfing!

Traditional seaside fun met modern technology when Worthing Homes held its annual fun day on 10 October at the Durrington Community Centre.

This year we wanted to make our fun day extra special as it is our tenth anniversary by holding it on the 10th day of the 10th month. We are delighted that so many of our residents turned out to help celebrate our anniversary. Robin King, chief executive of Worthing Homes

Local fire officers competed with residents and staff in a Knobbly Knees Competition, whilst the coconut shies and hoopla were busy all day! Local artist and Worthing Homes resident Kevin Johns made a beach scene peep through board which provided some good old fashioned fun along with Punch and Judy shows for the smaller children.

For the 250 people who attended the event there was the chance to give surfing a try on a simulator, and give their comments, views and suggestions on the Worthing Homes website which is currently being updated.

Girls from Davison School painted faces, while traditional seafood like winkles, mussels, and jellied eels were available to try. Blackbelt Leaders taught self-defence techniques to children on the day and the Regnante School of Performing Arts provided entertainment.

There were many competitions to enter and the Fun Day drew to a close with a grand prize giving. Some of Worthing Homes contractors kindly donated prizes and we would like to thank Coastal Drains, Awares Repairs, Anchor Garage Doors, DJB Joinery, Direct Blinds, W Stirland Limited. A special thank you goes to Ken, Matt and Brian from Bramber Construction for making our two beach huts.
