The Mary Seacole Housing Association is celebrating the success of its first free Community Open-Air Cinema.

The family event on Saturday attracted over 500 people who enjoyed watching Despicable Me 3 and traditional Peter Rabbit.

Friends of Mary Seacole organised the event to give something back to the community.

Elaine Cruise, from the organisation, said: “It was great to see families come out and enjoy the movies, we look forward to offering this again next year.

“It was a wonderful day for Mary Seacole and our generous partners who put funding into the Open-Air Cinema for the community.”

Many volunteers from Mary Seacole and corporate partners, including Elmecom Electrical, A-Plan Insurance, Spicer & Co Accountancy, Deakin-White, and Tesco also helped the day to run smoothly.
