Youngsters in Chesterfield enjoyed a mini World Cup tournament, a bungee run and sumo suit wrestling as part of a fun week.

Local police and Chesterfield Football Club ran the activity week in Queens Park with Spireites player Jamie Lowry stopping by to help out.

Other activities offered during the week, which ended on Saturday, included Ozbox, a climbing wall and a barbecue.

PCSO Paul Smith, of the Chesterfield Town Centre Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “The week was a great success with up to 40 children attending on each day.

“It has helped us to build relationships with the youngsters and hopefully allowed them to have fun and make new friends.”
