HUNDREDS of people enjoyed a fun-filled day in the sunshine on Sunday, thanks to local police.

Families and friends flocked to the community day in Greenwood Park, Chiswell Green, to revel in a range of activities and entertainment on offer throughout the day.

St Stephen PCSO Kelvin 'Mack' Mackenzie organised the event with the aim of rejuvenating a sense of community spirit.

He believes it did just that and now hopes to hold the day biannually. He said: "The day met the objective of getting the community together in a fun environment. It was a huge success with in excess of 500 people and we had excellent feedback from visitors."

Among the other activities to try out was a chance to conquer a three-metre tall Mont Blanc climbing wall and pony rides courtesy of the Chiswell Green Riding School.
