DOZENS of people enjoyed the sunshine at an orchard open to the public in Portsmouth.
The Stacey Community Orchard, in Walsall Road, Copnor, hosted a summer fun day for families on Saturday.
Teresa Newton, manager at the community centre, said the it wanted to attract more people to its activities.
She said: ‘There’s always loads to do, it’s really just getting the local community involved, getting them to see the centre and see what it’s about.’
Youngsters enjoyed a quiz trail outside, with plenty of stalls inside the centre itself too.
Ali Al-Mirza, six, was with her mother Aisha Al-Mirza, 25, at the event.
Ali, who attends Mayville High School, said: ‘We went on a treasure hunt.
‘I made a garden, I put soil in and then put some grass seeds in and some stones and a duck pond.’
There were gardening activities, football coaching, a skittle alley and music, along with a barbecue.
Councillor Darren Sanders, a ward member for Baffins, was there volunteering with fellow Liberal Democrat councillor Lynne Stagg.
He said: ‘The Stacey Centre is a fantastic facility for this bit of Baffins.
‘It’s great to be able to help out at a great community event like this.’
The centre is set to gain a nursery, called Baffins Nature Nursery, later this year in September.
