Picnic in Park

THE chance to master the art of drumming will be just one of the opportunities at a community fun event at Goldthorpe.

The Dearne South Picnic in the Park takes place on August 15 from 11am to 3pm at the welfare grounds adjacent to the Dearne Playhouse.

Free lessons on the Samba drums will be on offer, along with rides, stalls, refreshments and demonstrations, and your local elected council representatives will be on hand to chat and answer questions on the day.

The first 500 kids to go along and claim them will receive free picnic lunches, sponsored by Kier and put together by Coles’ Cafe at Wombwell.

Prior to that will be the Dearne North Family Fun Day that takes place on August 1 at Hickleton running track off Houghton Road.
