    Thanks to all who realised this was a Totton Fun Day (emphasis on the fun). The organisers did a fabulous job as they do each year at no cost to the public. Amazing.
    As the beat officer for the Calmore area it is my job to engage with the community and be approachable...I scared some people off with my dancing, but hopefully overall it left a positive impression.
    Stay safe, keep well and please see me at Totton Police Station if you have any concerns about my ability to be professional.
    Yours faithfully, PC Tristan Pugh
    As one of the organisers of this event, it was absolutly great to see this happen, so many people were watching and cheering along this made our local police look normal and approchable which considering how many young people were there has to be a good thing. I must also say a big thankyou to everyone who attended who make this such a great event and everyone who volunteered and gave up their time to make this event possible.
    It was treat to read good news for once, yet we still have people running it down, well done all who were involved."

THEY are used to being on the beat, so these bobbies could not help but join in the japes at a family fun day.

The cheerful coppers took some time out to get into the groove at Totton Family Fun Day when they joined in the Zumba class with group Fruityliciouz.

Sgt Ian Smith and PC Tristan Pugh had crowds screaming and whooping when they shook their booties, swung their hips and shimmied their shoulders in the name of a laugh.

One of the organisers, John Cunningham, said: “It really shows the police in a good light in the community the way they were willing to join in. I have to say out of all the free activities it certainly drew a big crowd and not surprisingly the cameras were all out. It was just great.”

Thousands of people flocked to the free event on Testwood Recreation Ground, hosted by Churches Together in Totton, which comprises Testwood Baptist Church and St Winifred’s Church, as a gift to the community.

Highlights included free refreshments, live bands and family activities including Southampton Spartans KorfBall team, cycle skills agility sessions, the Hazelwood Dancers, Romsey Rock Choir and the Fun Day House Band.
