More than 100 volunteers from New Horizon Church held an event called ‘Love Eastwood’ — a project aimed at helping the local community.

They provided food parcels, children’s crafts, face painting, bouncy castles, sumo suits, a bungee run and street cleaning.

Tea, coffee and cakes were also on offer in aid of Teen Challenge UK, a Christian charity for young people.

Andy Dilnot, the senior pastor at New Horizon Church, said that the heart of the project was to show that each member of the community is valued and loved.

He added: “On the day I was blown away by the fantastic response from local residents, people were smiling on every street.”
