A family will host a fun day to highlight the need for more children's activities.

Tammi Morley-Sutcliffe and her brother Justin Morley-Sutcliffe are working alongside Barnet Community Projects to put on a free family fun day on the green in Chesterfield Road, Barnet, on Sunday, August 31.

There will be bouncy castles, face painting, music, and a variety of activities including a bungee run and a penalty shoot out.

There will also be stalls available to hire for £20 - all proceeds from the event will go towards providing clubs and activities for young people in the area.

Mr Morley-Sutcliffe said: "There's nothing for young people to do in the area. There's a park and that's about it. We want this to be the start of providing fun activities for young people."

Volunteers are needed for the event, as well sponsorship money. To get involved email morleys4@hotmail.com

As well as campaigning for better children's activities, Mr Morley-Sutcliffe is also keen to improve road safety in Chesterfield Road after his eight-year-old nephew was knocked down on his bike last month.

He has launched a petition which has been backed by neighbours as well as nearby schools.

Typical middle class parents, they want their two cars and then moan that the streets are full of traffic and double parked cars. There's a park, what more do you want? Kids can't play and cycle safely in the streets like they did in the 70s, things have changed.

A lot of the kids round here would destroy it anyway, I saw a kid about 10 years old the other night about 9.30 with some older boys they all had beers and the 10 year old was trying to light a fag!
