Southampton singer-songwriter and finalist on BBC talent show The Voice CJ Edwards brought extra summery vibes to the day with a live performance.

Organisers Havant Family Church said that the event is a great opportunity to meet the surrounding community.

Pastor Steve Carey said: ‘We love having the opportunity to put on this free event which is enjoyed by so many.

‘Each year the Havant Fun Day has become more and more popular and we are amazed by the turnout.

‘Without the family church volunteers who share a passion for the community, the Havant Fun Day would not be possible.’
