Fun for all the family at Falkirk Stadium

The sun shone on Falkirk’s family day at Westfield on Sunday.

Despite April showers the rain stayed away as about 600 people descended on The Falkirk Stadium for football coaching and much, much more.

There were plenty of activities on offer at the fun day

The Bairns were aiming to give something back to the community and organiser Sarah Scott told The Falkirk Herald the response they received was overwhelming.

“It was a wonderful day,” she said.

“The stalls were really busy, we had between 150 and 200 children playing on the pitch and being coached by the community department - and everywhere you looked was busy.

“The stadium tours were popular and so were the stalls. We will be saying a special thank you to the fire service, TA, police divers and more soon.

“It was wonderful and the rain staying off made it even better.”

As well as the community coaching sessions which had youngsters hooked for two hours there was also a chance to try an inflatable assault course or explore a fire engine.

Cheerleaders from Starlight entertained the crowd as did an accordion band in the monoblock area.

Bairns themed stalls supplied football club merchandise whiole some supporters were given a behind the scenes look at the tunnel and dressing room areas of the Stadium.

Sarah, Dawn Corbett and the rest of the fundraisers will be undercover this weekend when the club launches the new kit for season 2012-13 on Sunday.

There’s also a race night in aid of the club planned on May 11. Tickets on sale from the club shop.
