PLAYING in the rain: Zombie Land FC and Superstarz, pictured, were among seven teams that battled it out in five-a-side football matches at a fun day held on the playing field in Lime Avenue and the garden at Community House, Wisbech.

More than 100 people braved foul weather to make the most of the day, which was put on by Roddons and Fenland District Council with support from other statutory and voluntary organisations.

The YMCA laid on craft activities, the Fire and Rescue service demonstrated how they deal with a chip pan fire, staff from Mytime Active carried out health checks and provided musical entertainment, and Bright Sparks provided a barbecue.

Other organisations taking part included Drinksense, the Oasis community centre, the Spinney Adventure Playground team and the police, who donated trophies for the football competitions.
