YOU can tuck into a tasty, free barbecue when Clitheroe Christians in Partnership host their annual community weekend.

Following the success of last year’s event, Clitheroe’s Christians in Partnership are planning a weekend of fun, service and celebration.

The free barbecue will be held at the bullring in the town market on Friday, May 25th – from noon until 2 p.m.

The following day, the event moves to Castle Field and the skate park, where everybody can enjoy live music from local bands Twelve 24 and Malokai, a five-a-side football competition, face painting, a Punch and Judy show, free food and much more for the children and young people from noon until 8 p.m.

The Rev. Mark Pickett, a spokesman for Clitheroe Christians in Partnership, said: “It was a huge success last year and so many people in the town said how much they had enjoyed it.

“It is community-spirited event with church volunteers and residents all coming together.

“The churches of Clitheroe are from all Christian denominations, and it is a way of loving and serving our community.”

Stephanie Clarkson, the Grand’s Schools and Projects co-ordinator, said: “The Grand is really excited to be partnering Clitheroe Christians in Partnership, and we are really looking forward to another successful weekend.”
