Updated 1:32pm Monday 14th April 2014 in North West
CHILDREN were kept busy during the Easter break by helping out in Lilford Park.
Supervised by the GMP Leigh East Team, the Friends of Lilford Park held a task and rewards day for 18 children, mainly from Leigh CE School.
They carried out basic housekeeping tasks in the park during the morning and were rewarded with a free lunch and entertainment, including a climbing wall, archery and problem solving, in the afternoon.
FoLP chairman David Sykes said: “The entrance to the park and around the bowling green looks much tidier. Everyone went home tired and safe at the end of the event.
“Once again a big thank you to everyone including the children for all your efforts.”
The event was a precursor to starting up community cadet scheme with support and funding from the Brighter Borough scheme from Clr Keith Cunliffe.
