Roll up, roll up! Youngsters get active – and learn new skills
Young Theo Walsh brushed up on his diablo skills at an event designed to get people active.
The five-year-old from Belgrave, Leicester, attended the health and wellbeing fair, which took place four venues in the area on Saturday – Belgrave library, Cossington Street sports centre, Belgrave Sure Start Children's Centre and Cossington Street Park.
Dad Chris took sons Theo and Jonah, two, to the park to try out the circus skills activities.
"Theo has just started to learn diablo so he was able to ask the guy there for some help with new tricks," said Chris, 39.
