MORE than 50 community groups from in and around Penkridge joined in with the village's celebration day.

The aim of Let's Celebrate Penkridge, organised by the parish council, was to showcase the work undertaken for the local community by not-for-profit, charity and community groups.

"The focus was to be on celebrating what the groups do, what they offer and what they need, such as more volunteers," organiser Councillor Sandie Morris said.

"I am overwhelmed by the support of a wide variety of groups and a wide cross section of the Penkridge community who turned out to show their support and appreciation.
