Tatura’s Howley Oval was a hive of action on Tuesday, as more than 50 children turned up with parents and grandparents for Greater Shepparton City Council’s Activities in the Park kite-making and flying session.January 28, 2014 4:00pm
Children were provided with free kites to colour in by Rob King, the ‘Kite Man’, who gave them tips on the best way to launch kites and keep them in the air.
Mr King said it was always some concern as to how many children would turn out for this type of event, ‘‘but to see so many keen youngsters today was fantastic’’.
Activities in the Park co-ordinator Claire Barnes was equally impressed by the turnout.
‘‘We (organisers) were extremely happy with Tuesday’s turnout and everyone appears to be enjoying themselves,’’ she said.
A number of youngsters spoken to by the Guardian said they had fun colouring in their kites, and were looking forward to getting out onto the oval and flying them.
The kite-making session was just one of many events under the Activities in the Park program, which have been provided by Greater Shepparton City Council throughout the municipality over the past month.
Further activities will continue in all Greater Shepparton communities, including Tatura, Merrigum, Undera and Toolamba, through until March.
