CHILDREN rubbed shoulders with the police at an annual community bash in Portsmouth.
Families with their children joined in the fun at Howard Road community centre in Hilsea.
The name of the game was community spirit as youngsters were treated to a bouncy castle, water slides and pony rides.
They got the chance to meet local police officers and look inside their patrol car.
Craft stalls, cakes and a raffle were some of the treats laid on.
In total, £188 was raised on the day. The money will be used to fund days out and play equipment for the community centre’s youth club.
Ted Fitzgerald, who organised the day with the residents’ association, said: ‘The whole event was very successful.
‘Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we saw record numbers of people attend this year. We’re definitely looking into running it again.
‘It was well-attended by kids and adults alike. he hardest part was getting everyone to go home.’
