The Olympics spirit has inspired people to get up and active and preschool children in Portishead joined in the fun.

The Nursery’s youngsters visited the Lake Grounds on Monday where they competed in a series of events.

Owner Jackie Hardie, said: “The children are very much aware of all the sport on TV at the moment so we have been looking at the different activities involved in the Rio games.

“Even though our sports day stuck mainly to running, jumping and balancing, the children have loved exploring a range of other sports.”
