Summer sumo wrestling in Shaftesbury
ALLEN Road in Shaftesbury was transformed into a summer fair as the local community came together to enjoy a host of entertainment.
Magna housing, who built 162 properties on the development organised the event to bring the community together during the school holidays.
A feast of free entertainment was on offer including inflatable sumo wrestling, arts and crafts, soft play area, children’s competitions and a barbecue catered by Magna’s community reps John and Lynne Coombe.
Magna staff were also on hand to offer advice from its mobile office relating to repairs, benefits, tenancy matters and how to get involved with Magna. Other community organisations supported the event including the Police, Homewatch and Area Plan.

Local resident, Amanda Roberts, commented ‘Really nice that Magna has put this on for the community. You can see by all the happy smiling faces that the kids have had fun. There was something for all ages and was great to meet some new friends.’
Organiser and Magna’s housing officer for the area, Jill Brighouse, commented ‘This development was three years in the making and to see the community come together today makes all the hard work worth it. It’s great to see the neighbours and their children socialise and enjoy the activities, whilst having the chance to talk to Magna staff and the community organisations supporting the event.’
