A FREE family games day has been organised by the public as a taster for the 2012 Olympics.

Residents from Waterlooville and Crookhorn will be raising money for The Rowans Hospice, Purbrook, and the MacMillan Centre at the event on Saturday, September 17.

Children will get the chance to take part in a range of running, jumping and throwing races and have a go on the bouncy castle.

All the family can enjoy and participate in demonstrations, ranging from martial arts to dancing and drumming, with the Sword Fencing Road Show also displaying their skills.

Organiser Chrissie Monck said: ‘This day is a great opportunity for the whole family to get together and have some good old-fashioned fun within the community.

‘There will be a variety of stalls providing both traditional and original activities for all the family, including hook-a-duck, tombola, Native American crafts and face painting.’

The Family Games are free to attend and will be held at Mill Hill Primary School field, Mill Road, Waterlooville between midday and 4pm.
