TRADITIONAL games and family fun were the order of the day when a Sheffield multi-cultural centre held its annual summer festival.

Galeed House, in Darnall, organised a host of activities including a pool tent, bouncy castle, cake decorating and even sumo wrestling.

Visitors were also invited to show their strength in a crockery-smashing competition, while children took part in a mini-Olympics.

Youngsters were divided into teams representing England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, and paraded around a marquee to their ‘own’ national music.

They then ran an egg and spoon race, obstacle course and a team balloon race.

The occasion was completed with a medal-giving ceremony.

Another highlight of the day was a spoof version of the fairytale Cinderella, which raised laughs among the crowd.

Galeed House runs projects which aim to bring people together from different ethnic backgrounds.

Paula Smithers, from the centre, said she was pleased the day was a success.

“There was a very happy atmosphere and a great community family feel about it,” said Paula.
