Children enjoyed free face painting, henna tattoos and bouncy castle. There was food on offer that was provided by the Sutton Scouts, Sutton Feast and St Andrews Church as well as sweets from Mr Simms.

The event finished off with a firework display that had to be seen to be believed.

The spokesman added: “Onlookers squealed with delight as the sky over Sutton lit up, to a fantastic musical overlay which incorporated a fitting tribute to the anniversary of the end of World War One.
