THERE was plenty of clowning around at a local children’s centre following a surprise visit from some entertaining guests.
Chico Rico the clown and his Planet Circus ringmaster, jugglers and illusionists left the big top at Lebberston for the afternoon to show off their skills at Eastfield Children’s Centre.
Barbara Merrygold, the centre manager, said: “Eastfield families attending the Children’s Centre’s Acrobat Fun session were very pleasantly surprised when the circus dropped by to show the children some circus tricks!
“The children and parents really enjoyed watching the clown juggling and the girls did amazing tricks with hoops. Everyone was truly amazed when one of the girls lay suspended in mid air, right in front of our eyes!
“Children were involved in the act and soon everyone found themselves having a go.”
She added: “After a busy morning of circus and craft activities, delivered by the Children’s Centre the children settled down for a story and a medal ceremony to celebrate their wonderful achievements.”
