Getting physical was the aim of the game at a 'Sporty Family Picnic' held at Wymondham's Robert Kett School for pupils under age five and their families.

The event, aimed at encouraging physical activity and healthy eating from an early age, included everything from egg-and-spoon races to hula hooping.

Groups including Rugby Tots, Be Smart Martial Arts, Wymondham Leisure Centre and Abbotts Dance ran taster sessions, and sports such as archery and tennis proved popular.

Parents were also shown how to put together healthy lunch boxes for their little ones by the school's chefs.

Mulberry Bush Day Nursery, which is based in Wymondham and Mulbarton, sponsored the sports day, and there are plans to hold another event next year.
