World famous, Oscar-winning cartoon character Mickey Mouse paid a visit to Radyr this evening!
He was seen singing and dancing in the Sidings, bringing some much-needed entertainment for the young children (and their parents) who live there.
He wins our Coronavirus hero of the day award. Well done Mickey!
Note to parents!
Adrian Currie, a member of the Radyr and Morganstown Association Committee, runs a company called Party Wales. He came up with this excellent idea:
I’ve been thinking over the past week of how difficult it must be for families with little ones to keep them entertained - and thinking what I could do to spread a little joy. Then a thought hit me...I could do my daily exercise of walking the village in some of my mascot outfits. So, I want to bring to your attention that in the coming evenings we will be in a street near you.
All we ask you to do is get the kids to make a Disney poster (during the day), to say that they want a wave from us. We will announce what mascot will be out each day so they can get creative (and be kept busy). Please feel free to take photos, cheer and wave from your windows or door-steps. This is to bring a little cheer to the kids (and big kids) in lockdown.
Mickey was on Fisher Hill Way, Junction Terrace and De Clare Drive this evening (1 April). You can see the schedule for his future visits on the RMA Facebook Hub and the RMA website.
A huge thank you, therefore, to the Party Wales team, for bringing much-needed joy to Radyr and Morganstown!
