10 pictures as Gardening and Well Being Festival at Park View 4U, Lytham proves a big hit

A first Gardening and Well Being Festival at Park View 4U playing fields, Lytham proved a big success and it is hoped it will become an annual event.

Around 1,500 people went along a day full of fun, family friendly activities and reconnecting with nature. Features included making some natural art with renowned land artist James Brunt and demonstrations by creative chainsaw carver James Sheliker from Acorn Woodcraft, while there was live music, the chance to have a go at archery and to meet alpacas and birds of prey, the opportunity to see a new willow bee sculpture and to make the most of plant and tool sales.

It was funded by Levelling Up Fund and Fylde Council with support from the Ernest Cook Trust and raised around £900 for the Park View 4U charity.
