There was fun in the sun at Home-Start Winchester’s family Fun Day when some thirty children and their parents enjoyed face painting, arts and crafts and messy play. A delicious lunch was laid on with lots of healthy eats and there was an opportunity to learn how to make fruit salads and mini pizzas to take home and bake.

Entertainment and magic tricks were an exciting finale to the day when magician Crazy M astounded her audience with sleight of hand and the production of a real white rabbit. Youngsters were invited to join in and try their hand at plate spinning and the afternoon ended with a raucous rendition of the Hokey Cokey.

Home-Start Winchester is a local charity which provides friendship and emotional and practical help to parents with at least one child under five years old.
