Mercure Barony Castle Hotel Fun Day

As the sun rose over the beautiful Scottish borders our team headed to the gorgeous Mercure Barony Castle Hotel, to play part in their 2015 Family Fun Day. With temperatures reaching a whopping 19 degrees and clear blue skies over the idyllic countryside retreat everyone was in great spirits for the fun ahead.

As doors opened the courtyard was quickly a buzz with guests ready for an afternoon of fun in the sun and a chance to sample the culinary delights from the BBQ. There was a fantastic atmosphere all the kids and adults alike enjoying the Giant Garden Games Kerplunk, Giant Jenga and Connect 4. A team of dads along with their sons managed to construct a giant tower from the tumble blocks. As they stood back proudly admiring their afternoon’s handy work patting each other on the back for their efforts.

Our Face Painter Keir was kept busy all afternoon as he transformed the children into butterflies, superheroes, princesses, Jungle cats and my personal favourite was the little crow and pig.

The Bouncy Castle was a big hit with the little ones and older kids, having bounce competitions, pencil rolling from one side to the other and some of the toddlers taking their very first bounces with mixed reactions. A traditional inflatable but all the same it went down fantastically and we even had requests for an adult only hour, perhaps next year.

Competition at the Air Hockey table was fierce, with adult’s vs kids, grannies vs grandads, brother’s vs sisters’ tension was high. And when someone ran off to play hide and seek with puck we thought it was all over, but fortunately it was found quickly and the competition continued and was enjoyed by all until the end of proceedings.

From the team at ABC Events thank you to Mercure Barony Castle for hosting such a fantastic event and allowing us to be a part of it, a big thanks has to go to Corina for organising it all. We can’t wait for next year and look forward to seeing you all again soon!
