The event, held on Monday, August 2, was the first of two events being held by the team this summer.

Lynn Riley, Ashfield Play Forum manager said: "Covid-19 has been a frustrating time for everybody. While our parks have become increasingly popular, events like this stopped for obvious reasons.

"It felt so great to be out doing what the play forum do best. We usually work all year round to provide fun activities for all the family.

"The event on our Lawn was a huge success and attended by children of all ages. We gave out nearly 500 craft activity packs.

"While we're based on Morven Avenue in the centre of Sutton, it's great to get out into our communities.

"I would like to thank the dozens of volunteers and the National Lottery for making days like this possible.”
