It was great to welcome The Message Bus to our area yesterday. First of all, we visited Houghton Road Centre in Thurnscoe.

Inside, younger children could play with toys or do jigsaws and craft activities:

Our Big Local Thurnscoe and St Helen’s volunteers cooked us bacon sandwiches to keep us going!

We then moved on to Goldthorpe, where the bus parked in the Market Street car park and activities were on offer at GPCC.

Salvation Army volunteers made us hot dogs for lunch; here are our capable helpers (including Sue who helped with the lighthouse painting) enjoying their own lunch at the end.

Then it was on to Bolton-on-Dearne where we had more fun!

Even the lads joined in the nail painting fun!

Our thanks to all the churches who supported the fun day, to all the helpers who worked so hard to feed us and give us fun things to do and to all the community who came along!
