FAMILIES flocked to a fun day with a difference.
The event, held on the field behind Cumberworth First School on Saturday, was organised by the village’s Community Association.
For the past 35 years the group has organised a village carnival.
However, to move with the times organisers decided to hold a fun day this year instead.
It included circus skills, a Punch and Judy show, children’s races, a carousel, bungee trampolines, teddy bear’s picnic, afternoon teas, beer and Prosecco tents, a barbecue and lots of stalls.
The day aimed to have a more relaxed and varied feel, with people visiting the cake stall being asked to ice their own cupcakes.
Instead of selecting a King and Queen as in previous years, for the new event two VIPs were chosen from the school.
Katie Roberts and Amelia Self, both aged nine, were selected from a number of entries and officially opened the event.
Organisers were delighted with the response to the new-look day, which attracted lots of local interest and over 600 followers on Facebook.
