Hundreds of children turned out for Peter Pan-themed fun yesterday as a Shefford children’s centre marked the UK’s 30th annual Playday.
The free event – held in Clifton by the Shefford and District Children’s Centre – featured a Neverland created out of recycled materials, as well as performers dressed as Tinkerbell and Captain Hook.
There was mud play and fire-making at a mock Native American camp, as well as crafts in a pirate cove and a pixie hollow.
Those enjoying the fun included Sarah Shanley, manager of Woodlands Pre-School in Clifton.
She said: “This was a fantastic event for the whole community – and being free, it was accessible to everyone locally.
