Dozens of youngsters enjoyed free sporting activities as part of the annual ‘Go Peel’ event.
The children scaled a large climbing wall and also took part in various sports including archery, netball, football, cricket and athletics under the watchful eye of professional coaches.
All 55 participants received a free t-shirt, medals and certificates and healthy food was provided on the day by Asda.
Go Peel is run by Councillor Joyce Plummer and Michael Clarkson in conjunction with local neighbourhood police and ward councillors and aims to get interested in sport or the army cadets.
She said: “It went very well and there was lots of different sports for the children to do.
“There was also a craft stall so they could make cards and boxes and things to take home.
“The idea of Go Peel is to get children into sporting activities as opposed to hanging around on street corners.
“We started Go Peel back in 2004 and it doesn’t cost the children anything.
“Medals were awarded to the best people in each group and they all got a certificate of achievement.”
