Huge crowds enjoy afternoon of fun and games at Wrexham Playday for people living in or visiting the wrexham area

It was fun and games galore in Wrexham town centre today with huge crowds turning out to enjoy Playday.

The family-friendly event saw free activities take place across both Queens Square and Llwyn Isaf throughout the afternoon.

Many chose to make a full day of it and enjoy the glorious sunshine with a picnic before heading back to take part in the fun.

There was the chance to build your own den, toast marshmallows, take part in dance sessions, learn how to spin plates or try and escape the make shift maze on Llwyn Isaf.

For those wanting to cool down in the warm sun there was a giant slip and slide or throwing wet sponges at someone in the stocks.

Cllr Phil Wynn, lead member for education, took one for the the team and was pelted in the face by some very eager children.

Local police officers drew a large crowd with their police van, with youngsters queueing up for the chance to sit behind the wheel and blare out the siren – as well as pose for photos.

Local play teams were on hand to help make sure everyone enjoyed the day, playing games with the youngsters and spreading the message of the importance of play.

On Queens Square the giant sandpit once again proved to be popular,  along with a very popular ‘floor is lava’ game.

There was giant volleyball, a rope obstacle course between the trees outside the Guildhall and much, much more!
