Put on by volunteers, the event has grown over the years and is popular with the residents.

Mum-of-two Lisa Richards, from Waterlooville, took her daughter Milly, four, and son Jackson, two.

The children enjoyed seeing the rabbits and the samba band.

Lisa, 31, said: ‘It has been a really good afternoon. There is lots to see and do and it is such a big space we can sit down and enjoy a picnic too.

This is the first time we have been and I am impressed
