Dozens of children and young people enjoyed a free fun day with a serious message behind it.
The Big Bang event, organised by the Kirklees Federation of Tenants and Residents’ Associations (KFTRA), proved very successful.
KFTRA joined forces with Kirklees Council’s Integrated Youth Support Services to put on a series of stalls and activities at Beaumont Park in Crosland Moor.
The idea was to provide a free event for youngsters from housing estates across Kirklees and encourage young people to get involved in their communities.
Activities included African drumming, wall climbing and skateboarding.
There were craft, knitting and nail art stalls and a refreshment bar serving free fresh fruit kebabs and juice.
KFTRA field worker Maxine Edwards said: “We hope the event will inspire young people to get involved in their communities.”
