Fun for all the family was on offer in Matlock as Hall Leys Park hosted a free sports day.

The event included sporting activities for all the family such as school sports day favourites, plus beat-the-keeper, face painting and much more.

The Matlock event was part of the Hall Leys 100 centenary celebrations and to celebrate National Family Week.

Derbyshire Dales District Council leader Lewis Rose said: “We know from listening to local people that active, healthy communities are important to them and National Family Week is a great opportunity to encourage families to spend more time keeping active together.”

The council is set to celebrate National Family Week next year. In the meantime, look out for their Summer Fun programme of activities taking place throughout the school summer holidays.
