Dinosaurs, tigers and princesses made a birthday party extra special for little Sid Montgomery - thanks to Harpenden Carnival.

For after entering the Southdown Play Areas working group raffle at the carnival in June, mum Jess won the prize of free face painting with Fantastic Faces by Glyn.

She opted to redeem the prize at Sid’s third birthday party at home in Southdown and while he opted not to have his face painted, big sister Maggie, five, and friends were delighted to put themselves in Glyn Goodwin’s hands.

Jess said: “Her talent and speed is unbelievable and the children were chuffed to bits - she even inspired some of the adults to participate.

“It was a real treat for my son’s birthday and we were proud to have won something from donating to such a great cause.”

The working group, known as SPAWG, is a registered charity that is raising money for the completion of the Oakley Road play area in Harpenden before turning its attention to the Magna Close play area.
