Some 15 teams entered to try their hand at a range of challenges including the local scouts and children and teachers from nearby Westgate Primary School.

They were tested at Catch The Rat, 10-pin bowling, beat the goalie and some sports’ day races including the sack race and egg and spoon race.

Prizes were presented by Caroline Vallence, the church’s children and families worker.

Vicar, Nick Alexander, said: “I think people really enjoyed themnselves and most of them stayed the whole time. We had lots of positive feedback. I think everyone enjoyed being part of a community event. We were very lucky as the sun came out just as we were starting.”
