Party and a picnic

FREE picnics will be up for grabs to the first 500 kids at a Dearne event on August 15.

The Dearne South Picnic in the Park takes place on the Welfare field by the Dearne Playhouse at Goldthorpe.

Rides, stalls and even the chance to learn to play the Samba drums will be on offer to families from 11am to 3pm.

There will also be the chance to meet and chat to local councillors about issues of concern in the community.

The event follows a similar successful day at Wombwell.
