CHILDREN and parents alike had a great time at a sun soaked sports day in Wrexham.

Eyton Primary held its annual family fun day with parents on site first thing to help put up a cooling down zone gazebo.

Samantha Jesson, one of the teachers at the school, said it was important to keep the children safe during the heatwave..

Miss Jesson said: "The PTA helped keeping everyone hydrated by supplying cold drinks and ice lollies.

"The beautiful weather made sure the day was such good fun and everyone who took part really enjoyed themselves.

"The day finished with a parents only bean bag relay race and also included a toddler race, for our up and coming customers!"

Miss Jesson thanked all the parents for helping to make the day a huge success and said the school ground had been beautifully maintained to make for such a great setting.
