ALTHOUGH the weather may not be as glorious as last week, there are still plenty of events in store to make sure you keep having a Summer of Fun.

A family fair with a green message will take place in Portsmouth’s Victoria Park on Saturday.

The Portsmouth Summer Fair will run from 11am to 5pm and feature games, art and crafts, circus skills sessions, land zorbs, hula hoops, a bouncy castle and films.

There will also be organic, homegrown food and drinks, green fashion and crafts and energy-saving ideas.

Organiser Chris Kennett said there would also be a pedal-powered stage hosting bands and musicians throughout the day.

He said: ‘What we are trying to do is to work with lots of local groups to make people think about how they can protect the environment and cut down the risk of climate change.’

Frogs, snakes and lizards will be among the guests of honour at a Reptile and Amphibian Weekend at Cumberland House Natural History Museum in Southsea.

The Portsmouth Reptile and Amphibian Society will have an array of animals for families to meet and learn about at the museum from 10am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Cumberland House development officer Gemma Waters said the animal days had been a popular event at the museum for seven years.

She said: ‘It’s an exciting experience for both children and adults.’

There will be a charity circus fun day raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support at the Green Post Pub in North End on Saturday from 1pm to 6pm.

There will be games, stalls, food, clowns, a raffle, an auction and more.
