Wet weather failed to wash out a fun day in Lichfield.

Winners at the Beacon Park fun day teddy competition

Beacon Park played host to the event last week that featured games and activities such as running on water inside huge inflatable balls, go-karting, a round on a nine-hole golf course, Staffordshire Hoard-themed metal detecting and tennis coaching taster sessions.

There was also a teddy arena, where children entered their bears into the best dressed teddy competition.

Three-year-old Nancy Frances won the first prize with her teddy, Pirate Pete. Kaitlan Jarvis, five, won second prize with her teddy dressed in Spanish costume, and Marni Lambert, three, won third prize with her teddy dressed for a swim.

Councillor Val Richards, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure Services, said:

“We’re delighted that, despite the odd rain shower, lots of people came to Beacon Park to join in what was a thoroughly fun day.”
