HUNDREDS of youngsters converged on Keighley's Victoria Park for a giant play day.

A massive range of free activities was provided for children of all ages yesterday to celebrate National Play Day.

"The great thing is that whatever the young person's interest there is something here that will satisfy that," said Caleb Sutton, Bradford Council's early childhood services manager for five to 11s.

"It has gone extremely well.

"The event is organised through the local authority but a number of partner organisations have come along and the aim is to get children involved in different play experiences and types.

"It forms part of a summer programme of events being held through the school holiday period in parks and other open spaces."

Attractions at the event included games, stalls, cooking on an open fire, crafts, inflatables, bouncy castles, a slide, climbing wall, rope swings, a sand pit and donkey rides.

Skyride provided cycling tuition for youngsters.
