Thousands of people took advantage of the 26 degree sunshine to attend the Chad family fun day at Southwell racecourse last weekend.

There was plenty of entertainment for all the family, with seven jump races, and the world cup final broadcast on a big screen.

The event is a family highlight on Southwell Racecourse’s calendar, and is one of the busiest days of the year.

Highlights of the day were Mr Chirrups Bug Safari holding shows throughout the afternoon, with bug handling and craft making, the children’s football themed fancy dress competition, pony rides, and Mansfield Town FC’s penalty shoot-out competition.

There was a barbeque or the option to bring a picnic.
