Sunhats and shorts were the order of the day for youngsters taking part in a sun-drenched fundraising walk in the park.

Keynsham Childminding Group met up for a sponsored “toddle waddle” in Keynsham Memorial Park on June 19, raising £350 in aid of the Meningitis Trust.

Inspired by the charity’s mascot, a yellow duck called Monty, the 35 children who took part made themselves decorated duck headbands and wore yellow for the occasion.

Fuelled by fruit snacks supplied by the new Co-op in Queens Road, youngsters set off on the walk before having a picnic and playing games.
