Marine Lake basked in glorious sunshine for its annual anniversary event at the weekend.

MARLENS hosted the second Lake Day to celebrate the 88th anniversary of its first opening on March 30, 1929.

Crowds of excited visitors made the most of the soaring temperatures to take part in a host of water-based activities including zorbing, crabbing, paddle boarding and sailing.

The first Lake Day coincided with the official reopening of the lake following the completion of its £850,000 refurbishment.

MARLENS is also preparing for its first open water series, starting with an aquathlon on May 20.
