Jun 30, 2007
Konzum together with its business partners continues to organize Saturday entertaining and educative events for children on newly opened playgrounds within the Project "Let's get back playgrounds to children". The first "Merry Saturday" was held on 2nd June on the playground of Super Konzum Črnomerec, the second one was on 16th June on the playground on Otokar Keršovani Square, and the last saturday in June (30th June) was reserved for the organisation of the third "Merry Saturday" on the playground of Ciglenica Park between 4 and 7 pm. Apart from Zvečevo, one of the largest confectionary producers in Croatia, and Ledo, the largest producer of ice-cream and frozen food in Croatia, Konzum's partner was also Jamnica joint-stock company, the largest Croatian producer of mineral and spring waters and soft drinks. The third "Merry Saturday" was at the same time the last one in the City of Zagreb during the summer time period, and the event will be continued from the beginning of the new school year.
"Merry Saturday" brings to all children a lot of laugh, playing and spending time with their peers. This saturday children could enjoy watching the popular mascots "Fifi and her Flower Company", that invited children to dance and play, children's magic tricks and the entertaining play for children "Three Little Pigs“ that guaranteed excellent amusement. The sports competitions encourage children to try themselves in various sports activities and show their skills and speediness. Within the creative workshops children drew fancy drawings, and made items out of clay and plasticine. All children who participated in activities were given gifts by Jamnica.
The project "Let's get back playgrounds to children" was initiated by Konzum and the City of Zagreb with a view to ensure in each of 17 districs of Zagreb a quality playground as a place where children can spend their spare time with their peers in a carefree play. Besides Konzum and Agrokor, as initiators and investors of the Project "Let's get back playgrounds" as well as the City of Zagreb, which provided the city areas for the construction of playgrounds, other participants of the Project are the Zrinjevac Company, which provides all the horticultural works and the Regoč Company, which supplies equipment and toys for the playgrounds. The next playgrounds to be opened will be situated in Folnegovićevo and Ferenščica, and by the beginning of a new school year all the districs of Zagreb will have a new playground with high quality equipment. All the facilities of the new playgrounds meet the highest standards and safety norms, design quality and ecological standards, which provide an active and diverse play to children.
