Bank holiday fun for all the family at the MCYP Fun Day
The Marlborough Community Youth Project Fun Day is all set for for Sunday, 28th August at the Recreation Ground in Salisbury Road. The fun starts at 11 am and there will be lots going on, from a tug of war, to rides, to a car boot sale, to music and more!
