Goldenhill Celebrates it’s Annual Fun Day

Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association (S.A.G.E.) attracts hundreds of visitors to its Annual Goldenhill Fun Day last Saturday which first started in 2007.

This year the event introduced the “Total Wipeout” activity as well as having the City Council’s “Red Road Train” pictured right, which took visitors around Goldenhill and taking in views across to Newchapel and Mow Cop Castle.

Event organisers invited Lisa Hamlett, McDonald’s Area Manager to officially open the day. Tom Simpson, Secretary of S.A.G.E. and Lisa shared positive comments on how both organisations have complemented each other to better the environment, and help support residents in the communities of Sandyford & Goldenhill.

Special thanks go to Staffordshire Police & “KASH” Police Dog Mascot (pictured left), Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service, City Council’s Youth Services Team, Dance Music Live & Goldenhill & Tunstall Scouts.

This year the event again attracted 30 plus Table Top Market Street Stalls, which were all undercover, and gave the occasion that special purchasing/browsing opportunity that shoppers enjoy.

Our thanks go to everyone who took part on the day, including all volunteers who gave up their time to make the event a very special day.
