Families had a great time at the Ilkeston Hospital League of Friends’ garden party held on Saturday.

Children got the chance to dress up as their favourite characters, and to throw wet sponges at the adults. Pictured, bottom right, is Molly Taylor giving dad Matthew a soaking in the stocks.

Also pictured is Grace Westley taking a spin on the teacup, and youngsters collecting their fancy dress prizes from Councillor Abey Stevenson, the deputy mayor of Erewash, and the chairman of the League of Hospital Friends, Eileen Knight.
