Families were out in force last week for a fun day at Weston-super-Mare’s Ashcombe Park.

Party In The Park was held on July 27, with hundreds of people turning out to enjoy a day full of fun.

Children’s entertainer and event organiser Action Pussycat drew big crowds to its stall, with youngsters meeting characters from their favourite films and TV shows.

An inflatable obstacle course and play area was the star attraction at the party, and children queued up in numbers to have a go.

There were a variety of stalls and games at the fun day, and PCSOs from Avon and Somerset Constabulary were on hand with a police car, offering youngsters the chance to look inside and sit behind the wheel of the vehicle.

An Action Pussycat spokesman said: “Thank you everyone for turning up and making the event the success it was.

“Special thanks to our sponsors Lions Club International and Animal Farm Adventure Park, and to the help given by North Somerset events team.”
