Peppa Pig and her brother George visited Lightwoods Park in Bearwood to splash around in muddy puddles while raising money for Save The Children.

The TV characters joined children from Smarty Pants Nursery, based at Lightwoods House, for the Muddy Puddle Walk on Monday (23 April).

More than 200 toddlers and parents from the nursery and the nearby ABC Nursery came together for a walk through the park with Peppa and George.

And they got round the lack of muddy puddles thanks to paddling pools filled with compost and water where they had a splash around.

Nursery owner and manager Lydia Browning said: "We were so pleased with the turnout and that we raised more than £100 for Save The Children."

Lightwoods House opened in January 2018 having been extensively restored thanks to a £5.2million project funded by the council, Big Lottery fund (BIG) and Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).

Smarty Pants Nursery opened last September in a brand new building next to the house, designed to look like the old stables.
