Motown and soul band ECHO entertained the crowds who gathered under the sun at Jenkins Pavilion, off Medusa Way, on Saturday.

There was also plenty of other activities to take part in, including a Jazzercise demonstration and a children’s drumming lesson from KingsStock.

A free barbecue was also supplied, with stalls on the scene ranging from clothing to face-painting.

Sandy Community Church’s senior pastor Michael Sijuwade was delighted with the event.
