An open day and toy sale was held at the Hamlet Centre's Children's Centre and Toy Library in Norwich today.

The event was held at the charity's Johnson Place unit, at the top of Grapes Hill, between 11am and 3pm and offered local families the chance to find out more about the Hamlet Centre.

Marketing and fundraising officer Leon Smith said: 'We had a steady flow of people throughout the day and the toy sale did very well, so we were happy with the turnout.

'What was really great as well as the toy sale was to actually show that we are more than just a mainstream pre-school because I think there are still a lot of people who are still unaware of the services that we provide.

'We also sent our mascots Johnson and Ella into the city and that brought a few more children in to look at the toys.

'The mascots are relatively new as well, they were only launched two months ago, and we want local families to familiarise themselves with Johnson and Ella so that when they see them, they think of the Hamlet Centre.'

The event also offered families the chance to see the new state-of-the-art sensory studio at Johnson Place, which has recently been completed.
