HEANOR Gate Science College students and parents have taken part in a PFTA-organised Fun Run at Shipley Park.

The event, which started and finished at Shipley Hall Cricket Club, featured two short distance runs.

A one-mile junior fun run for youngsters aged between five and 11 preceded a five-mile fun run for pupils aged 12 and over.

Both were well attended with the courses taking in a cross country route across fields and paths in the park.

Several of the dozens of competitors added a splash of colour as they entered into the spirit of the day by running in fancy dress.

All entry monies from the event are being put towards specialist physical education equipment for both the school and the wider local community.
