Families enjoyed fun fair rides, an animal farm and a range of other activities in Norbiton on Saturday.
The Cambridge Road Estate Community Group (Crest) held its annual family fun day over the weekend – the 10th year the event has taken place.
Kingston mayor Penny Shelton opened proceedings, and enjoyed a few of the games on offer, including hoopla.
Meanwhile children made the most of a rodeo simulator, met farmyard animals and sat for caricaturist Jock Davies.

The event cost an estimated £4,500, with money raised throughout the year through raffles, jumble sales and other fundraising events. Crest chair Jill Preston said: “It was very good.
“There was much more of a community spirit this year, and it didn’t rain at all, so we were very lucky.
“We changed it a bit this year and made it more community focused.
“What we’re learning is that the economy is biting, and we’re trying to find things for people to do for free.
“This way kids can still have fun without spending any money.”
