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.”
