Trustee Kathryn Winfield, one of the event organisers, said: “It was a lovely atmosphere and we had such brilliant support from the community. One of the highlights was those volunteers who brought the families they work with to the day so that they could have fun as well.”

She added: “Thank you to Amanda Murray, our patron, who hosted the day and to all her staff who made it so special for Home-Start and its families. Thank you to all the Home-Start volunteers who came and worked on the stalls.”

The petting zoo and face painting were really popular stalls, as were the swings and bouncy castle.
