There was a carnival procession that lots of young children took part in.

And there was a petting zoo, a funfair, a dog show, a Punch and Judy show and a performance from local children’s dance troupe Bright Stars.

Organiser Helen Dunning from Leigh Park Traders’ Association, said: ‘It’s been absolutely fantastic.

‘It was a beautiful day with the weather. Lots of people turned up.

‘I’m a local trader so I think at least once a year I should be doing something for the community that supports me.

‘It’s giving back to the community.’
