CHILDREN said it with flowers to help celebrate Yorkshire Day.

Youngsters made paper roses and decorated letters to spell out Yorkshire.

Over 70 people attended today's event, at Central Hall in Keighley.

Other attractions included painting, a quiz, toy building bricks and a bouncy castle.

KIVCA, which organised the extravaganza, said it was delighted with the response.

Development manager, Julie Lintern, told us: "Following on from the huge success of the Tour de France when it came to the county last month, and the pride it generated, we wanted to do something to build on that and to celebrate Yorkshire Day.

"It also gave us a chance to promote the many free activities that are available to people on their own doorsteps and to showcase the fantastic facilities on offer at Central Hall, which we want to be used as a family venue. A lot of people who came along were visiting the building for the first time."

Inclusion development worker, Penny Wangari-Jones, added: "The event brought together people of all ages and helped keep the children entertained. It went very well."

Yorkshire Day was also celebrated elsewhere in the district.

At Haworth Visitor Information Centre, people had the chance to taste food donated by local businesses.

There was also a Yorkshire-themed quiz and a craft activity.
