Hundreds of children and families enjoyed a fun packed day out at the Wisbech Adventure Playground to celebrate a national play day.
The town’s event was organised by Cambridgeshire County Council’s teams.
There was a huge range of free activities for everyone, including a bouncy castle, disco, BBQ, resident artists, people and animals and police cadets stands.
There was den building, junk modelling, tombola, face painting, bead and necklace making and a water slide as well as all the adventure play activities always available at the playground.
Councillor Steve Tierney and former councillor Virginia Bucknor attended to open the brand new pavilion.
There were also representatives from the Clarion Housing Group, which had funded the new playground installation.
They also funded a new trampoline and new furnishings for the play barge.
National Playday is an annual event that celebrates children’s play. It is into its 30th year.
It is the biggest play sector event in the UK and as well as a celebration of children’s right to play, it is a campaign that highlights the importance of play in children’s lives.
