COMMUNITIES and cultures came together at a family fun day.
Hundreds of parents and children visited the event in Stoneyfield Park in Deeplish which organisers dubbed ‘Unity in the Community’.
DOZENS of dogs were the stars of the show at Wardle Village Fete.
A total of 120 entries were received for the fete’s fun dog show, which included categories such as waggiest tail, best smile and best fancy dress.
All money raised from the dog show went to PAWS - Pennine Animal Welfare Society.
THE Pioneers Museum went batty in its fight against a moth epidemic.
The Toad Lane museum hoped to attract a colony of bats to eat the insects which were damaging its textiles collection.
Bosses at the museum, which celebrates the history of the co-operative movement, said they have seen an ‘explosion in the numbers of textile attacking moths’ in recent months.

So they have bought 20 bat boxes - dubbed B.O.B. ‘bird or bat’ boxes - which will be put up around the area in a bid to encourage bats to move in - and then eat the moths.
