THERE was a party atmosphere as hundreds of people gathered for a summer fete.

Waterlooville Recreation Ground came alive with dozens of stalls, a bouncy castle and exciting dance displays.

Lydia-Mae Locke, five, had the chance to do a solo performance for the Mayor and Mayoress of Havant, Ken and Hazel Smith.

Her mum Kirsten Lock, 36, who is a dance teacher at Classique School of Dance in Waterlooville, said: ‘She had a chat with the Mayoress afterwards and was very excited.

‘We were very privileged to be able to perform to them.

‘It’s been a good day. I’m glad to see something like this in Waterlooville and hopefully they will do the same thing again next year.’

Hampshire Constabulary set up a stall at the fete, along with local charities.

Pompey legend Alan Knight was invited and was more than happy to sign a few autographs.

April Waugh, 30, went wild with the make-up and came as a clown.

She was promoting Mill Hill Children’s Centre, a Sure Start centre in Mill Road, Waterlooville.

Staff from the centre offered face painting and tattoos to visitors.

April, a receptionist, said: ‘It was lovely to see lots of families here.

‘It was good because we got to promote the centre and I got to be a clown. I love dressing up!’
