LITTLEHAM residents got to meet their neighbours and learn new circus skills in the glorious sunshine at a free fun day last Saturday.

Dozens of people and children of all ages turned out to a free community and family fun afternoon at Littleham Leisure Centre in a prelude to the Exmouth Festival this week.

Organised by LARF - Littleham's Associations, Residents and Friends - the afternoon was funded thanks to a contribution by county councillor Eileen Wragg who donated part of her community budget.

Children and young people enjoyed a range of events including learning circus skills like juggling and unicycling.

They also enjoyed a Drum Crazy session where young people of all abilities join in an orchestra of African percussion instruments helping them work to together to find a rhythm, encouraging teamwork and helping them to focus and concentrate.

Organiser Sue Saunders said: "Everybody had a great time and it was a good opportunity to meet young people in the community and trying to make them more socially aware.
