OCKENDON Rec has come on leaps and bounds over the last few years.
This is in no small part to the host of organisations that give their time and energy to improve the facilities in the area, especially for the youngsters.
With that in mind, a sports day for families is being held next Wednesday.
The games, at Ockendon Recreation Park, in Church Crescent, are being hosted by members of the South Ockendon Community Forum.
The fun day will be held from 10am to 4pm and will include sports training and a children’s entertainer.
Entry is £1 per person, regardless of age, and all children must be accompanied by an adult on the day.
