FAMILIES enjoyed a fun run through the Town Gardens and summer fete.

Dozens of children and parents took a quick morning jog through the gardens before browsing stalls and playing games at Lethbridge Primary School.

Nick Horwat brought his son Henry and daughter Emily along to the run and rewarded them with a double-cone ice cream.

Nick said: "They ran very fast, we struggled to keep up. We went home to chill for a bit then came back to have cakes, this was our first time here and we all loved it."

A magician astonished youngsters with sleight-of-hand tricks, a tug-of-war proved fiercely competitive and a bouncy castle was full throughout the day, plus hampers made by the children from each class were raffled off.

Supply teacher Juliet Campbell said: "It was lovely to see everyone come into the school with their medals, the hampers looked amazing and it was a well-organised day. My eldest did the teddy tombola and my youngest liked all the sweets and ice cream.

Becky Jackson and Ria Walega organised the event. Becky said: "This is our busiest event of the year, it raises money for the school and the kids always have a fun time."
