Highlights of the event, between 10am and 2pm on Saturday June 16, will include youngsters showing off their skateboard and biking skills, old-fashioned games and boot camp and martial arts demonstrations.

The free-to-enter celebration will also include football, cricket and rugby, with candy floss, home-made cakes and other stalls for less energetic revellers.

The event is organised by the Friends of the Rec committee, whose Sheila Lister said: “It’s about the kids and the parents to show there’s a place for children to go and play in safety and there’s a lot for them to do.”

For more information, or to book a stall for £5, contact Mrs Lister on 01760 720114.
