“I was just walking with my friends and decided to stop and see what was happening. They looked like they were having fun,” said Ethan.

This year the money will go to Creative Youth based in Kingston who organise The International Youth Arts Festival.
“My dad and I play golf all the time but I have never tried it with dough balls,” said Jamie a 12-year old boy who participated with his father in the event.
The state of Seething and people of Surbiton set up the unique event in 2009.
