FAMILIES took advantage of a special event which gave them chance to find out about sporting opportunities on their doorstep.

Frenchay Joint Clubs Sports Open Day saw a range of clubs come together to offer taster sessions as well as opening their doors so visitors could look around and watch sport.
Clubs taking part included Frenchay Cricket Club; Downend and Frenchay Tennis Club; Bristol Golf Centre, Dings Crusaders RFC; Just Jog, an independent women's running and jogging group; Gary Harris Cycles, an independent bike shop and Rockleaze Rangers FC.
Many of the sessions took place at Frenchay Cricket Club's ground in Common Mead Lane, Hambrook. People also had the chance to visit sports facilities which have been developed over the past year, including Hillside Gardens, where Rockleaze Football Club now play, and at Shaftesbury Park, home to Dings Crusaders Rugby Club.
The event, on April 14, kicked off with a family fun run, organised by Just Run, a Frenchay-based running club suitable for all abilities.
