PICTURE GALLERY: Lots of skills on show at Swaffham fun day

Dozens of youngsters demonstrated their skateboarding, martial arts and rugby skills at a fun day on Saturday aimed at highlighting activities for young people in Swaffham.

The event also featured live music from acts signed to the town's recently-created Box Delux record label, and fairground rides and stalls.

Firefighters who brought a fire engine to the event at the town's recreation ground said they were mobbed as soon as they arrived, and children were particularly fascinated by their torches and helmets.

Town councillor Sheila Lister said: 'I think the kids' skatepark has been brilliant. When they did the display it was brilliant.'

Children from Swaffham Rugby Club helped introduce the game to other youngsters.

Minis chairman Guy Reynolds said: 'The kids we had were interested in playing. The kids who came over do not play football so they wanted to do something else.

'We are getting more and more children who used to play football but they don't get in the team so they come to us.'
