Family Fun in the Park

A POPULAR park is hosting a family fun day tomorrow.

The Town Centre Communities Family Fun Day will take place between 11am-4pm at Burn Valley Gardens.

Attractions include Punch & Judy shows, children’s rides, a bouncy castle, climbing wall, face painting, pony rides and more.

The event has been organised by Irene Cross of Hartlepool Borough Council, in partnership with Burn Valley North Residents Assosciation.

Irene said: “Admission and many of the activities are free and we would urge people to come along and enjoy the fun. The event has proved really popular in previous years and we are confident that will be the case again this year.”

The following Saturday, Rossmere Park will be holding the annual summer carnival, with the fun beginning at 11am.

Visitors can enjoy a Wild West show, fairground rides, side-shows, a miniture railway and a variety of trade stands.

Friends of Rossmere Park secretary Ann Marshall said: “Admission to the event is free, although there may be small charges for some of the attractions.

“We are looking forward to a really succesful day and hope people come out in force to support us and have some fun.”
