Police officers from Belper met residents and took on local children at a game of rounders during a community fun day.

Families from across the town attended an event at the park, off Park Road, which was organised by the Belper Multi-Agency Team (MAT) to celebrate five years since the children’s centre opened. As well as finding out more information about the children’s centre and the different agencies that are part of Belper MAT, youngsters had their faces painted and took part in activities organised by Sporting Futures.PC Dave Baggott said: “I hope it gives people the confidence to stop and talk to us in future.”
