More than £3,500 was raised for Diabetes UK at a family fun day in Harold Park.

The Cromer Park Foundation organised a Summer Vibes Family Festival in Henderson Sports & Social Club in Harold Park on Saturday, July 20 with volunteers from Diabetes UK.

Pete Sell told the Recorder: "With all of the weather warnings, we only had a small shower at the start of the day and the sun was shining for the rest of the afternoon and into the evening.
