Anita Grodkiewicz, Rosmini centre manager, said: “The aim was to encourage children and adults to try out new activities and it was a fantastically successful event.

“We had between 700 and 1,000 people turn up throughout the day and I’d like to say a very big thank-you to all the staff and volunteers who supported the event.”
