A YEARLY event which celebrates the assets of a community in the Moorlands was hosted on Sunday. Despite the threat of adverse conditions, the weather proved good for the Party in the Park that was held over the weekend on Tean Road recreation ground in Cheadle with many residents enjoying a day of entertainment with neighbours and friends. Live music, competitions and craft stalls created a welcoming atmosphere for those who attended.
There were many community and charity groups in attendance including the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal, Staffordshire Wildlife Trust and The Lee Rigby Foundation, to name but a few.
The visit of an army truck and Chewbacca from Star Wars and a sit-on train brought a smile to many a face throughout the day.
A flower show that was held in one of the tents also proved popular with event-goers.
Party in the Park, which is run by Cheadle Town Council, has been running for over 16 years and the Mayor of Cheadle, Ian Plant told the Times and Echo of how pleased he was with how well it went this year.
He said: “It was a fantastic day, everybody enjoyed themselves.
“I know it can be a lot of hard work for some but it makes it all worthwhile when it gives something back to the community and I think the community appreciates that.
“People coming together to enjoy themselves made for a great day.”
