POLICE officers, teenagers and other visitors to Grove Park got the chance to try out segways and play a number of fun games at the weekend.

The YMCA in Weston-super-Mare held its Summer Starter event in the park on Saturday and thankfully the weather stayed dry.

The event offered a range of activities to engage children and teenagers.

There was a bouncy castle assault course, segways, face-painting, street games, sport challenges a climbing wall and more.

Weston Toy Library, which is now based at St Anne’s Primary School in West Wick, was also showcasing its service and the bandstand had performances from a number of budding musicians from Weston College.
