About 800 people flocked to Kingsway Park for the family fun day, which featured attractions ranging from displays, exhibitions and entertainment to live music, a dog show and children’s rides.

One of the organisers, Julia Long, enthused: “It was brilliant. It was all about the community coming together, and everyone enjoyed it.”

The event won rich praise on the Facebook page of the group behind it, C.A.K.E. (Community for Action and Kirkby Events).

Nicola Thorpe posted: “It was so lovely to see people out and about enjoying themselves. A great atmosphere.”

Shelley Bowers said: “A fantastic day. We all loved it.”

Diane Bellinger added: “Thankyou to the C.A.K.E. team for all their hard work. It was a brilliant day, enjoyed by all.”

Gaynor Bright also thanked C.A.K.E. and was full of praise for “a great day”.
