THE People’s Voice NPO hosted the Merlewood Family Fun Day at the Merlewood Sports Ground recently.

The event, which was said to be “much-needed” for the community, was deemed a huge success.

The People’s Voice presented their plan for the family fun day to all the committee members of the Merlewood community, who included Ward Councillor in Ward 17 Ajit Rajaram; Merlewood Primary School Governing Body (SGB); the Sporting Committee; the Housing Committee; the Community Policing Forum; Beauty for Ashes NPO; as well as the hosts, the People’s Voice NPO, and it was well received.

Activities which took place on the day included athletic races, egg and spoon races, sack races, apple in the bucket races, and 11-a-side soccer tournaments.

Spokesperson Tessa Matlala said the event turned out to be the success and this was primarily due to community support.

“We would like to thank the leadership of Merlewood, the community, the children who came in numbers to participate in the games, as well as the parents,” said Matlala.

“We would also like to thank our sponsors Highway Truck and Trailer, Function world, Pick ‘n Pay, Ultimate Branding, Kentucky Family Trust, Bekhapambili Fresh Produce, and Rockwell Automation for making the event possible,” said Matlala.
