Glorious summer weather and a fantastic range of activities attracted a record number of children and their families to four Mid Sussex District Council Play Days at the start of August.

Local children and their families were invited to come along and enjoy a free afternoon of fun and activities in Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, East Grinstead and Hurstpierpoint at the start of August.

The theme this year was ‘beside the seaside’ and all the activities were inspired by the traditional British beach holiday. There were donkey rides, Punch and Judy shows, a bouncy castle and a helter skelter. Children were able to get their faces painted and race their friends using solar powered boats.

Events ran from 11am to 3pm on the following dates;

  • Wednesday 1st August - Victoria Park, Haywards Heath
