All the fun of the fair for kids.

DISADVANTAGED children from specials schools in Birmingham and beyond enjoyed a rare visit to a fun fair courtesy of a Midland Freemasons group.

About 500 kids, aged between five and 16 and with a range of physical and mental difficulties, enjoyed the fun of the fair at Cannon Hill Park in Birmingham.

The Fun for Kids Day was the tenth annual outing organised by Worcestershire Freemasons as part of its Freemasonry in the Community commitment.

It was supported by Freemason Brother Robert Wilkinson, who allowed his fair to be used free of charge, the Kings Heath Freemasons group and the new Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Councillor Anita Ward.

Derek Owen, chairman of the Kings Heath group, said: "The children, and the adults, all had a fantastic time."
