Members of the Victoria Park short mat bowls club took on children and teenagers, while others tried skating on the synthetic Ice Skating Rink.

Other activities included a trampoline, a cup and saucer ride and New Age Curling, athletics, basketball, Bocha, Water Zorbin balls, tennis and football.

There was also face painting, arts and crafts, health information stalls and bike workshops.
