This Day In 2001 - Youngsters Clown Around In Village


18th August 2011

A group of youngsters spent a happy day clowning around in Maiden Newton.

Chief clown Nigel Jackson put 16 children through their paces in the art of clowning, including sessions on a unicycle, tightrope walking, juggling and face-painting at the village’s youth and community centre.

The day was arranged in conjunction with Artsreach, which is also putting on a play in three days with local youngsters.

One of the organisers, Debbie Billen, said: “The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

“It was the first time we’ve organised a clown workshop and it was well attended.”
