ORGANISERS are promising that the upcoming Atherton Cricket Club Family Fun Day will be even better than last year’s successful event.

They say more attractions have been added and there will be something for everyone to enjoy from 1pm on Sunday, June 4.

Attractions include a large funfair, sports activities, inflatable games, face painting, craft stalls and barbecue food.

Lancashire County Cricket Club will be in attendance with their Lanky The Giraffe mascot, entertaining the crowd with a Thunder and Lightning Roadshow.

Disney characters Belle and Moana will treat the children in attendance with a special appearance at 3pm.

A spokesman for the event, which is open to all, said: “We have literally got something for everybody and it promises to be a great day for the community of Atherton.”

The event will be held at the cricket club, which is based behind Howe Bridge Sports Centre off Eckersley Fold Lane.

Entry is £1, with children getting in for free.
