Hundreds of people turn up to Millom fun day
Last updated at 15:17, Friday, 11 May 2012
HUNDREDS of people flocked to a church fun day.
The event, organised by churches in Millom, saw more than 600 people attend and enjoy face painting, swimming and fun and games.
Church leaders organise the event as an act of good will and to show their support in the community.
The event took place in Millom Network Centre on Monday.
The Bay Radio held a live broadcast from the event and children and parents were able to enjoy ice creams and bouncy castle fun.
Pastor Fred McKeown, who helped organise the event, said: “There were between 600 and 700 people there.
“It was a great success. We put it on to give something back.”
The event, now in its fifth year, even gave people the chance to throw wet sponges at members of the clergy.
Mr McKeown said: “I got a few chucked at me but it was good fun.
“This year is the most people we’ve had along.
“It was great to see the Bay there and we’d like to thank the Millom Network Centre for letting us use the building.
“We’re looking forward to next year already.”
