On Monday August 6 the Healthy Weight Partnership held it's first Conga Pram Push in People's Park.
111 people attended the Conga Pram Push in People's Park Grimsby
111 people attended and contributed to setting a new record for the amount of prams being pushed together at any one time.
The free event took place in People's Park as part of an awareness campaign for the 20th World Breastfeeding Week and organisations from the community, council and health were there with information, freebies and advice.
Attendees spoke to local breastfeeding peer supporters, the Pre-School Learning Alliance, the Balfour Beatty transportation team and the Family Information Service.
There was also the opportunity to have prams tested by the Trading Standards team and find out all about the new 'Prams in the Park' group training for mums and pre-school children.
Following a Zumba warm-up families took part in a conga walk on a planned route around People's Park.
Lauren Jackson, North East Lincolnshire Council's healthy weight partnership coordinator said: "The event was a great success and we would like to thank all of those that helped and the families that came along and took part. We look forward to doing it all again next year when we hope to beat our own record!"
