Energetic youngsters got the school holidays off to a sporty start with an action-packed day of fun on Tuesday last week.
More than 100 sprightly children, from the Church End and Roundwood Estates in Willesden, took part in a sports day outside the Unity Community Centre, and got stuck into a variety of traditional races, as well as games of football, basketball and badminton.
The day was organised by local volunteers and Fortunegate Community Housing, which has just completed a decade-long regeneration of the area.
Youngsters paid just £1.50 to take part in the fun and will be able to enjoy a host of activities planned throughout August.
Michelle Brown, a volunteer from the estate who helped organise the sports day, said: "It was fantastic and showed that you can have a really good time without breaking the bank.
"The success of the day was down to the effort of the young residents who helped plan it, as well as the other volunteers involved and the staff from the unity centre.
"We are now geared up for the other activities which will be taking place over the coming weeks."
Anstey Burnett, from Fortunegate, said: "We wanted to give people something fun, but something they could afford, so we worked in collaboration with the local people to make it happen.
"We had an egg and spoon race, sack race and a lot of team games. The kids loved it."
