HEAVY showers didn’t put people off a family fun day in Cotmanhay where more than 80 people turned up.
Six canal boats, fun and games and a strongman competition all drew in the crowds.
The event was organised by the Boaters’ Christian Fellowship and Ilkeston Churches Together.
Hazel Dilnot helped arrange the event. She said: “We were very very happy with the event and how it went.
“People seemed to really enjoy the day despite the heavy showers.
“There was about 80 people crammed under a gazebo at one point enjoying a demonstration by Tough Talk, a group of ex-gang members and criminals who are now Christians.”
