• Armed Forces Day in Newton le Willow

    I joined the Armed Forces Day ”Picnic in the Park” Event in Newton last weekend alongside local Labour councillors from Newton and Earlestown; Cllr David Baines, Leader of the Council; our local PCSOs, and Armed Forces veterans and cadets.

    Organised and supported by members of the local community, sports clubs, and Park Rangers, the celebration has become a real highlight in the Newton-le-Willows annual calendar. A parade down Newton High Street was led by Valley Brass Band followed by the picnic in the park and other family activities.

    It was fantastic to see the many different parts of our community together and so many families enjoying themselves in the Willow Park sunshine.
