Mango the magical rabbit put smiles on the faces of children attending this birthday celebration.

Brothers Davy and Piran Repper turned five and marked the occasion with a fun-filled party for friends at the church hall in Shedfield.

Davy and Piran, from Waltham Chase, enjoyed an afternoon of party games, magic and plenty of laughter.

Mum Rebecca says: ‘This was their first big party. Five is quite a magical age and they’ve just started a new school so I thought it would be a good way to make new friends. There were 24 children and a couple of the mums stayed on as well.’

Children’s entertainer Silly Scott organised a fun game show for the party guests. Davy, Piran and their friends played ‘guess that theme tune’, with funny sound effects added for wrong answers.

‘It was quite comical,’ adds Rebecca. ‘He got some of the adults involved too. Mango the rabbit was magicked up and the boys were given magic trick boxes and certificates as well.

‘Scott was very good. He made them model balloon animals. Their favourite part was making the rabbit appear with the wand. They had a really good time.’
