After months of planning with the Churches in the local area Sunday 25th soon came around.
It was a damp start to the day but the weather picked up and the sun appeared now and again, at least it kept dry. Party in the Park began with a service and the Mayor of Bolton officially opened the party.
There were plenty of stalls in the Gazebo Village including the Triangle stall, café area, prayer tent, bouncy castle, climbing wall, inflatable football pitch, there was a super hero parade, dog show and many more, some just sat watching the children dancing, including Bethany Atkinson who danced solo, singing or listening to groups including our Praise Band, there was something for all ages.
We did a Treasure Hunt which proved to be popular for the children, if only they could find the bears!!!! As the afternoon progressed the weather got better and more people turned out wandering around the Party in the Park.
The day closed with the Epilogue and blessing led by the ministers from the local churches and everyone went home after an enjoyable afternoon.
