In pictures: Hundreds enjoy 'super' event marking 2012 Olympic Games

A super event to mark the London 2012 Olympics in Woodlands Park saw people take part in the spirit of the Games.

The occasion, organised by Woodlands Community Events, a collaboration of White Waltham Church, Woodlands Park Methodist Church and Housing Solutions, saw more than 250 people attend the Phipps Close Recreation Area on Saturday.

The main attraction of the day was the 'centre games' where teams took part in a series of sports including tug of war, water balloon volleyball, and keeping the beach ball in the air.

David Andrew, vicar of White Waltham Church, said: "People came together to enjoy themselves in the spirit of last year's games and I think everybody had a good time.

"The aim of the event was to bring together the community in Woodlands Park and for people to come and have fun alongside their neighbours."

Other activities included a climbing wall, bouncy castle, sumo wrestling, face painting, Olympic torch making, icing biscuit medals and the 'Woodlands Park' pentathlon.
