A big thank you to all the families who joined us at Russborough House, Co Wicklow on Saturday, 27th August! The sun was out, the sky was bright blue and we had an action-packed morning with fun maze-activities, face-painting and a big, magical balloon release!
“Great day, well organised. The venue was lovely and there was plenty to keep the children engaged and interested. Everyone we met was friendly and helpful. The goody bags were lovely too and much appreciated.” Siobhan
Families were encouraged to bring along a picnic and each child received their own eumom goodie bag, packed with healthy picnic treats and fruit for their maze adventure. Everyone was also encouraged to explore the large 2,000 sq metre maze and the stunning grounds of Russborough House with their children.
We were in Wicklow to bring the summer holidays to a close and celebrate the launch of Buplex Junior, a new orange-vanilla flavoured oral suspension for babies, toddlers and children aged from 3 months to 12 years. Buplex Junior helps your little ones leave fever, aches and pain behind and gets them ‘Up and Away’ in no time.
“We had a great day, brought a picnic and stayed on afterwards walked the grounds and enjoyed an ice cream after the walk and fairy trail.” Elizabeth
The crew from Today FM’s Alison Curtis Show were there to chat to families and join in on the action on the day too. They broadcasted the event live to the nation’s listeners & made sure that lots of little ones got to say hello to their friends and family listening in at home. We even gave away a weekend family break to the Westgrove Hotel to one lucky Today FM listener.
After the big release of a thousand orange balloons, everyone was invited to have a family portrait to take home and to explore the beautiful surroundings which included:
- sweet Fairy Trail of woodland fairy homes
- Children’s Play Area with slides, swings, and climbing frames
- gorgeous Parkland Walks
- beautiful Walled Garden
There was also the chance to view some fun, interactive sheepdog demonstrations and see some stunning birds of prey including magnificent eagles, owls, hawks and falcons. Thank you to everyone who told us that they had a fabulous time – we did too – and here’s what you had to say:
