Newark's Sconce and Devon Park became a hub of autumn fun for the afternoon
A family fun day with seasonal crafts and games was held yesterday (Thursday).
Newark and Sherwood Community Hub ran an afternoon of autumn-themed activities at Sconce and Devon Park for the half term.
The hub provides free play opportunities for children across the district with the support of Newark and Sherwood District Council, which organised and funded the day.
The event was the first held at Sconce and Devon Park since covid-19 and it attracted lots of visitors in the sunny weather.
Jill Musson, community hub manager, said: "It is nice to see everyone out, and enjoying being out.
"We like to go to as many parks in Newark as possible."
Children were invited to get involved in making clay Boggarts — a type of spirit from English folklore — and wreaths.
There was also a bouncy castle and a giant autumn dome where youngsters could play with falling leaves.
Samantha Fendley, of South Muskham, got craftywith her children at the wreath-making stall.
She said: "We've had a great time. It's amazing what Jill puts on for the community.
"We've been to lots of events over the past few years."
Children could even try their hand at fair games and percussion instruments.
Those with a keen eye might have even spotted Mr Fox dashing around.
