The children enjoyed arts and crafts activities, playing sport, trying their hand at circus skills, face painting and learning the art of beat box.

Play workers Polly Mercer and Jane Sharp, from East Devon District Council, ran the two-day event.

Lots of parents and carers came along with the children and the team extended their thanks for the support.

Jane and Polly are keen to recruit more community volunteers for future 'Off the Sofa Dayz'. Volunteers, who must be 16 or over, will have the opportunity to receive free training in a range of activities. If you are interested call (01395) 571556.
