FAMILIES flocked to Stratford Park this afternoon for Stroud's annual Family Fun Day.

Hundreds came along to enjoy an array of entertainments and activities, as well as live music at the event organised by Stroud-based Christian charity, Ignition.

Organiser Phil Coysh said: “The whole idea of this event is to provide a fun filled free community event which celebrates the joys of life but at the same time helps children and young people in particular to recognise the value of who they are, even when the world around them might sometimes tell them otherwise.”

“We have designed the event so that there is someone for everyone, from toddlers right through to young at heart grandparents.”
