WELLINGTON’s Wacky Wednesdays are becoming more popular throughout the town as hundreds of people flocked to celebrate Easter.

The events are organised by the Wellington One Team partnership, with other organisations, and the latest Easter Extravaganza attracted almost 400 people to St John’s Church of England Primary School.

Families and children enjoyed free refreshments, face painting, an Easter trail, a barbecue and the main attraction was go-karts.

A spokesman for Wellington One Team said: “The positive feedback is testament that all the hard work and organisation - and seeing so many families having so much fun is what the whole day is all about.

“The organisers would like to thank Gareth Jones, head of St John’s School for kindly allowing the school and grounds to be used, and a special thank-you to the caretaker Andrew Fudge for opening the school up during his holidays.

"Thanks also go to Terry Milton for his PA system and Court Fields community pre-school for the face-painting “These events would not be possible to host without so many local organisations, and volunteers working so hard together.”

GLL Better, Taunton Deane Borough Council’s leisure services partner, entertained the children with egg and spoon races while youngsters also enjoyed arts and craft activities.

The One Team worked in partnership with Knightstone Housing, Taunton Deane Borough Council, Wellington getset team, GLL Better, and were joined by Wellington town guides, Secret World, Reminiscence Learning, Wellington Churches Together and Besom.

Wellington Mayor Bob Bowrah attended the event with his wife Liz, and said a few words to welcome the families.
