A SUMMER garden has been created at Runcorn Shopping Centre to showcase the talents of the community.

Throughout the school holidays, residents have been invited to come along to sing, dance and join in fun-filled activities.

Widnes Vikings mascot Kemik stage various sporting challenges.

Residents were invited to a 'poppy picnic' and all proceeds from the charity lunch were donated to The Royal British Legion.

Children have enjoyed a pirate and princess party.

Centre manager Karl Clawley said: "We wanted to deliver something the whole family could enjoy.

"To be able to offer such a simple idea and engage community members to entertain each other is really positive.

"In the 12 months that I have been in position, the one thing that I can see is how strong the people of Runcorn are within their communities.

"We are delivering right at the heart of it."

The park is open until Saturday, August 30.
