To mark the occasion, Locking Preschool in Grenville Avenue hosted a picnic for children and parents to enjoy.

Games, stalls and a pair of ‘special’ visitors were put on at the park as families enjoyed the sun during one of the year’s hottest days.

A spokesman said: “We had an ice cream van, donkey rides, popcorn, book stalls and a bouncy castle.

“We had tea and cake, and a special visit from Paddington Bear and Peter Rabbit.”
