Crazy Golf

Crazy Golf
The first group to use the newly refurbished Crazy Golf course at Haigh Country Park. They were a visiting group of children from Chernobyl who were brought over by a charity. This happens every year to give them respite from this area blighted by the nuclear disaster in 1986.

Nice to see kids enjoy themselves at a simple game for fun. Hope these kids are still around in10/15yrs to show their kids the fun.

Can anyone help? does anyone know who this party was with? I failed to take contact details. I would like to get in touch so that I can give each youngster a picture as a memento of their visit.
