SCORES of people flocked to Padiham’s ‘Party in the Park’ at the weekend.

The festival in the Memorial Park featured fun for all the family.

There was entertainment for children, games and contests to enter, face painting and various stalls.

Live music included performances by the Burnley Alliance Silver Band.

The public services attended including the local neighbourhood police who were out in force showing off some of their equipment.

The event was organised and sponsored by Padiham Town Council and helped to raise money for the mayor's charity.

The visitors’ centre, run by the mayoress’s committee, provided refreshments, together with a tombola and lucky dip, proceeds from which will go to the Padiham Community Fund.
