A fun day has been held to launch a scheme that will see £1m poured into an area over ten years.

Face paints, a pet zoo, a roving magician and a bouncy castle were among the attractions at the fun day, held on Saturday to mark Grassmoor and Hasland getting ‘Big Local’ status by the Big Lottery Fund.

The status means the area will receive the funding to improve the quality of life in the area.

These youngsters, Callum Timmons, six, and Lucy Timmons, three, made the most of their time at the free event, held at Grassmoor Primary School by the community’s Big Local steering group.
