Families enjoyed a day filled with sports and activities at Slough’s Lismore Park on Saturday as part of a borough wide initiative promoting healthy living.
The event, organised by Slough Borough Council’s Get Active team, included Frisbee golf, a bouncy castle, face painting, and football and rugby courtesy of Slough Town Supporters Trust and Slough RFC.
Representatives from Thames Valley Housing, One Housing, A2 Dominion, Solutions 4 Health and Thames Valley Police were on hand to give information.
Oxfordshire Community Dental Service visited and provided oral hygiene check-ups.
The day was part of Love Slough’s Parks, a council initiative encouraging people to visit Slough’s parks more often.
Get Active officer Gavin James told the Express Saturday’s event was the year’s final Love Slough’s Parks event.
He said: “A lot of people say they can’t do sports and activities for a number of reasons, whether that be costs or venue.
“We say, you’ve got a great bit of park land here.
“It’s just about making use of the parks and of the spaces we have.”
