Twelve teams of up to eight participants from local day centres for people with learning difficulties took part, with the eventual winners ‘The Red Arrows’ from Outreach3Way in Ifield taking the trophy.

Each team took home a commemorative plaque and each individual received a certificate and medal to recognise their achievement. Lion Richard Johnson, Vice President of Haywards Heath Lions Club, who again organised the event said: “This is always a great day, I’m not sure who has the most fun – the Lions and their helpers or those taking part.

“One thing I am sure of is that we are all looking forward to coming back again next year.”

The Mayors of Crawley, Brenda Smith and Haywards Heath, Sujan Wickremaratchi together with members of Horsham Council were on hand to judge the best JOKER competition and to help with the presentations.
