Andrew joins 'Barton Bash' celebrations

NEWS_POST27.jpgSaturday saw glorious sunshine as residents celebrated the return of the "Barton Bash".

The estate's annual fun day took place at the Barton Neighbourhood Centre and there were a number of activities taking place throughout the afternoon, as over 1000 people turned up to join the party.
99 year old Dorothy Pearce, the oldest member of the Barton Community Association, cut the ribbon to open the festival along with Andrew Smith MP.
Andrew said: "It all went wonderfully.  It was absolutely beautiful weather and the really strong Barton community spirit came through in all sorts of ways."
There were displays by the Strawberry Fayre Majorettes, with music, street dance, and karate, not to mention zumba and salsa demonstrations. The children also enjoyed the opportunity to play on the bouncy castle and have their faces painted.  There was also balloon making and apple pressing.
Sue Holden, Event Organiser and Secretary of the neighbourhood centre, told the Oxford Mail: "The atmosphere was very festive.  Everybody seemed to be in very good spirits enjoying what they were doing."
