Others tapped their toes to live tunes, had their fortunes told by a psychic or practised their balloon modelling skills at a special workshop. 

Pear Tree Court, which is run by Care UK, also presented Horndean charity Hannah’s Holiday Homes Appeal with a trophy and a cheque for £300, after it won its competition for local good causes. 

The initiative  – which offers families with seriously ill children free breaks – was set up in memory of Hannah Westbrook, a 10-year-old from Waterlooville who died from Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
