This year’s fun day will have over 60 community and craft stalls and a range of family activities including donkey rides, face painting and a ride-on fire engine plus inflatables.

Foodies are also well-catered for with food from around the world.

Festival organiser Gordon Charlesworth said: “We have a very exciting festival line-up this year and I advise people to book early where needed to avoid disappointment. Leaflets are being delivered door to door in Meanwood so local residents won’t miss out.”

Gordon also thanked the festival sponsors who back the event as well as the Myrtle Tavern and Meanwood Cricket Club for their support for the fun day.

Meanwood Festival is the jewel in the crown of the Meanwood Valley Partnership, which consists of volunteers working to enhance the area.
