The a free community event had been washed out on its original date, May 31, due to strong rain and wind but this time it was a beautiful day.

Organised by Adur Homes, the fun day was then rescheduled for last Sunday at Adur Recreation Ground, in Brighton Road, Shoreham, following the success of last year’s inaugural event.

Matthew Reeve, housing administration manager at Adur Homes, said: “There were more than 50 stalls and attractions, including funfair rides, climbing wall, messy activities and a foam cannon.

“The event gave local charities and organisations the opportunity to have a free stall to help raise funds and their profile. Adur Valley Girlguiding gained 38 new members from their stall at the event.

“The dog show proved to be extremely popular, with nearly 200 entries and all proceeds going to Allsorts Dog Rescue.

“Adur Homes is looking forward to running the event again next year.”
