BOSSES at a building society have hailed their fun day as a great success.

Dozens of children and parents dropped into the Leeds Building Society’s branch in Morpeth for the event which aimed to provide a range of activities over the recent half term holiday.

As well as a visiting clown to keep people entertained, there was a classic car on display, a colouring competition, balloons, raffle and more.

Goody-bags were also presented to children who opened an account on the day.

The car – a 1928 American Victory Saloon, one of only 300 ever made in celebration of the tenth anniversary since the First World War ended – proved a hit among the young visitors.

A spokeswoman for the branch said: “The fun day went really well and we had a few new accounts opened as a result.”

There were three finalists in the colouring competition – Katy Livesey, aged ten; Findlay Keith, aged five; and Dan Jeffcorat, aged three; with overall winner Findlay receiving a large piggy bank as the prize.
