Family fun day 2023

Family Fun Day 2023 at Royal Russell School

On Sunday 3 September 2023, we held our second Family Fun Day at Royal Russell School. CMS members and their families plus our guests, Cllr Manju Shahul-Hameed and Cllr Lynne Hale, were welcomed by our President for 2023, Miss Ranee Thakar.

The sun shone brightly for 60 adults and 26 children who all had a wonderful fun-filled afternoon. This was made possible by Royal Russell School generously allowing us to use their facilities at the Cricket Pavilion and sports field. Thaddaeus and Fergus Ford provided an excellent BBQ and their father, Dr Nick Ford, was part of the Lock Down Brass Band who played so well for us.

Lots of activities were provided for the children (and adults) – bouncy castle, large garden games, rounders, short cricket, tug-of-war, parachute games and croquet.

A special moment during the afternoon was when Mr Kambiz Hashemi was presented with a well-deserved Croydon Medical Society Lifetime Achievement Award. The medal was presented by Dr Agnelo Fernandes and Dr Nick Cambridge read out a citation as to why he had nominated him for the award.

Lots of photos were taken which reflect what a great day we all enjoyed – these can be viewed in the members part of the website.
