Grange Festival returns tomorrow with live music, fun and games and a barbecue for peopleliving on the estate in Ribbleton.
The event, which is supported by Community Gateway Association (CGA), Grange Primary School and Shotta TV, is the second to be held this summer.
It will see the school’s playing field in Grange Avenue taken over from 11am with bouncy castles, inflatable sumo wrestling, a sound system, DJs and MCs.
Jimmy Fraser, 40, who runs Big Bouncers bouncy castle hire, is one of the organisers of the event.
He said Preston’s Guild Tram hot potato stall was providing parched peas and a cooker, while Community Gateway Association donated £225 for food and Forrest builders from Red Scar Industrial Estate lent two toilets.
He said: “Last time we all paid for everything, so it’s great to have people like that on board, helping the people of Grange.
“Grange hadn’t had anything like this for a while so now people have got something to look forward to. All the kids have been stopping us and asking when the next one is on!”
The barbecue will offer burgers and chicken for £1 each, hotdogs for 50p and parched peas for 30p.
Any money raised after costs have been paid will be donated to the primary school.
Danny Walsh, 32, from internet radio station Shotta TV, which is providing music, said: “We’re really excited about these activities now happening on Grange. We would like to say thanks to Community Gateway, all the residents and the school for their support.”
Loraine Campbell, community development officer at CGA, said: “As a community led organisation, we put our tenants at the heart of all we do.
“We encourage resident involvement in communities that supports CGA’s Vision – ‘Inspire People, Inspired Communities’.
“Our tenant-led sponsorship group receive applications from resident groups from across CGA’s local community areas and they are keen to assist where they can by offering funding to help support their activities.”
