Little World Preschool held its second annual sports day on July 5 and the youngsters had the chance to compete head-to-head in a series of exciting races.

Among the running events were an egg and spoon race, sack race and a tricky little obstacle course which kept the children on their toes.

In total, more than 50 children got to take part in the eight events as the preschool lucked in with beautiful sunshine bathing the fields adjoining Hangstones Pavilion in Stowey Road.

Angie Hall, on behalf of the preschool, said the event could hardly have gone better.
