FAMILIES soaked up some sunshine and got in the community spirit at an annual summer fete.

The fun-filled event was held at Jubilee Park, in Rowlands Avenue, Waterlooville, on Sunday.

There was fun for all the family, including an arena, trade stands and games.

Entry was free and it was all put together by Waterlooville Community Forum, Havant and Portsmouth councils and Hampshire County Council.

Sam McInnes, 28, of Waterlooville, turned up with her son Fletcher, three.

‘We’re really local – we’re only up the road – so we thought we would come down,’ she said. ‘Fletcher really enjoyed himself.

‘He went on the bouncy castle and played the “hook a duck” game.

‘He liked seeing the fire engine and police car.

‘It was nice. There were children dancing.

‘Things like this bring the community together.

‘It’s not often these things happen. Plus it was a nice sunny day, so that brought more people out.’

Victory Wheelers also showed off a display of impressive motors.

It was the first time the hot rod and custom car club had made an appearance at the show. Member Tony Dodd said: ‘It was really good.

‘There was a lot of interest.

‘People were quite surprised and didn’t know what to make of the hot rods at first.’
