NEW MILTON played host to its very own take on the classic television show "Its a Knockout" over the bank holiday weekend.

There was fun to be had for people of all ages with foam, games and inflatable assault courses to get involved with.

Named after the BBC1 show the event was part of this year’s May Family Fun Day run by the town's Lions Club. According to organisers the main aim of the event held at the recreation ground was for the Lions Club to provide a major attraction for the public at a minimal cost.

The event also aimed to give individuals and competitors in the games an opportunity to raise money for charity with "every penny of the profit going to help local and regional good causes".

There were a range of community groups and stalls, as well as a refreshment tent, a bar and a barbecue.

Live entertainment will be performed on the green throughout the afternoon.

The New Milton and Barton branch of the RNLI displayed scale-models of lifeboats that are handmade by members of the Solent Radio Controlled Model Boat Club.

Other organisations attending were the New Milton Friends Group and the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust.
