The park in Huntingdon was filled with a host of activities for all to enjoy with stalls from local charities and music from Huntingdon Community Radio.

Park manager Shilpa Desai-Sakaldip said: “The day was fantastic; we had gorgeous weather which helped. This is our third year and it is just going from strength to strength.”

After the huge success of the petting zoo during the park’s Easter event it returned for another day to give visitors a chance to fed their favourite farm animals.

“We also had something slightly different this year instead of inflatables we had the Playbus come along which the children loved,” said Shilpa. Also on the day there was also face painting along with a tombola and hot and cold food served by the Snack Shack team.
