The event featured attractions including live music, an inflatable slide, a bungee run and 
pirate assault course, as well as a barbecue provided by charity Living Waters Storehouse.

Samantha Hornsby, neighbourhood development officer at CCH, part of the Adactus Housing Group, said: “We had an amazing turnout to what was a fantastic day for Chorley residents.

“The main aim of the day was to provide fun and entertainment for all so we made sure that there was plenty on offer.”

The rain stayed away and the sun came out for large parts of the day, and children were able to make the most of the activities while parents visited the information stalls or relaxed on the green.

Carol Halton, Living Waters Storehouse coordinator, said: “Everybody that we spoke to on the day said they were having a great time and they were so pleased and grateful to have an amazing free event like this so close to home.

“We’re so happy to have been involved this year and can’t wait to do it again in 2015.”
