Hundreds of people flocked to the Park for an afternoon of fun and sports, with a host of activities including:

For those of a less sporting disposition, or who simply wanted a rest, there was also a Plant Sale, and plenty of refreshments, with a barbecue, cake stalls, and an ice cream van, all backed up by the FoSJP Kiosk.

The event was a huge sporting success - well attended, with many children (and adults!) trying something new. Many thanks must go to all the volunteers who manned the stalls and organised the events, and those who helped prepare and tidy up afterwards.

We'd also like to thank the following organisations for their support with this event:

Here are some of the youngsters - and the not so young! - enjoying just a few of the many events on offer:
