Sunny weather for fun event News - Sunny, warm weather with blue skies overhead prevailed for the free fun community event hosted by the Richmond Co-operative Nursery School in Richmond last Sunday afternoon. The grassed area beside St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, which is the home for the Nursery School premises, was the location for the activities such as face painting. There was another group of tables which generated bubbles which floated into the air. One of the bubble making machines was in the form of a fish with the bubbles coming out of its mouth. There was also a set of tables set up filled with goodies for the youngsters and parents who attended the event. There was a cupcake tree, plates of goodies and watermelon slices, along with drinks.
