Fun in the sun to help families.

PUBLIC-SPIRITED neighbours rubbed shoulders during a sun-filled festival to boost community ties in Coventry.

Hundreds swarmed to Quinton Park, in Cheylesmore, for a fete which aimed to relight Blitz-era bonhomie.

As local bands strummed and sang, chilled families wandered from stall to stall to find out more about the services and facilities available in their area.

Queues also snaked round the packed venue for free hog roast sandwiches and face painting.

The event's organisers, the Action for Cheylesmore Team (ACT), was born in 2005 following a survey that revealed locals thought the community lacked unity..


FUN... Crowds enjoy the festival at Quinton Park. SMILE... Sisters Carys, aged five, and Rhiannon Tranter, eight, of Willenhall show off their painted faces.
