Fun and games in Bilston

Have your say

BILSTON Gala Week and Fun Day is bringing smiles to summer.

Organised by Roslin and Bilston Community Council, the festivities kicked off on Monday with a scavenger hunt in Roslin Glen, while Bilston Park is the venue for Wednesday’s football tournament.

The fun continues on Friday with a fancy dress parade through Bilston. Participants should meet at the Miners’ Welfare Club for 6.30pm. A ticket-only disco follows in the club until 9pm.

Bilston Park hosts Saturday’s Fun Day, from 1-5pm, and attractions include LaserQuest, Gyroscope, Eliminator, an assault course, Dynamic Earth, Butterfly World, archery and face-painting.

Community councillor Katherine Lang said: “We’ve been posting flyers in Bilston and Roslin because we want to get as many people as possible involved.”
