On Saturday 4th June 2011 we took over the Oval Park in Saltdean (just to the rear of the Lido) for our first ever Fun Day and what a day it was! 

The sun shone brightly and around 5000 people turned up throughout the day to enjoy the activities, stalls and entertainment.  In the evening we had Saltdean's first ever concert in the park with almost 500 people inside a huge marquee enjoyed Paul Zenon, The Bobby McGees and the fantastic Brighton Beach Boys.
