Visitors could enjoy a 75ft inflatable assault course, get creative with craft tents and have a go at big, outdoor games.

They also got to meet animals in a petting zoo.

The day was organised by the Family Church Portsmouth North, which meets at King Richard School.

Pastor Steuart Payne, a member of the group, said: ‘It is important for us to bring the community together for a day where they can relax and have fun.

‘Not everyone can afford to go out on expensive day trips so we wanted to make sure it was all free so everyone in the area could reap its benefits.’
