Organised by the Rotary Club of Padiham in conjunction with the cricket club the family fun day was a great success.

Attractions included stalls, face painting, sand art, a bouncy castle and stocks.

There was a Birds of Prey demonstration and Padiham firefighters went along with an engine for visitors to the fun day to explore.

Members of the Inner Wheel sold home-made cakes and there were several different types of food stalls.

Youngsters took part in a series of games and challenges including tug of war with boys against girls, egg and spoon and sack races. Medals were handed out to the winners and drinks and biscuits served up by Birchalls Caterers.

Rotarian Kathy Watson said: "This was a good old fashioned family fun day that the Rotary Club could not have organised without the help of all the rotarians and their partners.

"We would also like to thank all the local businesses who were so generous in donating money and gifts to ensure the day was so fantastic."
