Teachers from Cranbrook Primary School, in The Drive, had a challenge in a three-legged race and mums and dads ran in their own 100m finals.

School pupils competed in hurdles, running races, athletics and sporty challenges including football and hockey dribbling at the all-day event on Wednesday (10).

The winners, even the parents, were awarded medals from headteacher Jas Leverton at a presentation.

PE co-ordinator Michael Tracey estimated that around 400 people turned up to watch the sports day.
