The second of three family fun days in Ellesmere Port, organised by Cheshire Police, has been hailed as a success.

About 250 people attended the local event at Hollymere Extra Care Development on  Wednesday, August 14.

The event was run in conjunction with Alison Parry of Your Housing Group, as well as some of the residents of Hollymere.

PC Sian Jones, of Ellesmere Port Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “It was a great day supported by Cllr Pat Merrick as well as the local community, both young and old.”

Families enjoyed numerous activities including face painting, a bouncy castle supplied free by Airbounce Leisure, live music, DJ Dave Bladen and card making with Hollymere residents.
