There was everything from an astrodome and archery to army assault courses and a giant snail when Midhurst Rother College opened its doors to members of the public.
The special event was the college’s annual Community Day which organisers had promised would be the biggest and best yet, and they did not disappoint.
People in Midhurst turned out in force to take part in all that was on offer and helped celebrate the tenth anniversary of the event which has been going from strength to strength over the last decade.
The event, which aims to bring all sections of the community together, showcases a wide variety of clubs, organisations, charities and businesses which contribute to the community spirit in and around the Midhurst area.
Event organiser, Maddie Hathaway said: “This event celebrates the diversity of the groups who help to make Midhurst the community that it is.
“It aims to demonstrate how individuals can volunteer and support each other as they strive to make the area a vibrant place to live.”
“With such a wide range of activities on offer, people of all ages found themselves learning skills that they would never have otherwise had the chance to experience.”
One visitor said: “there really is something for everyone here,
from beauty demonstrations to archery and stargazing, it’s a fantastic event.
“So much on offer is free to enjoy, it’s refreshing to have a family day out that doesn’t cost a lot of money.”
