YOUNGSTERS across the borough enjoyed fun and frolics aplenty with a series of activities designed to keep them entertained.

From a recreation of the Last Night of the Proms attended by Bessacarr war hero Ben Parkinson to the opening of a new games area there was plenty of fun to be had.

The Danum Eagles basketball team dropped in to help officially open a new multi use games area in Intake. A variety of games were staged as the official unveiling of the site off Shaftesbury Avenue was held to coincide with the Neighbourhood Alliance crime blitz. At nearby Town Field Primary School youngsters showed they had a heart as they took part in a red day in aid of the British Heart Foundation.

Young bookworms also got into the spirit with children at Sunnyfields Primary School dressing up as their favourite characters to mark World Book Day. Hatfield Library also staged a similar event.

Gardening was also on the agenda as Askern Moss Road Infant School received recognition from the Royal Horticultural Society for its efforts to promote gardening.
