Lightcliffe’s annual village gala at the cricket club on Sunday (July 7) is set to be bigger and better than ever with hundreds expected to flock through the gates.

There is added excitement this year as Peppa Pig returns to provide fun for all the family for the highlight of the Lightcliffe village calendar.

The traditional family fun starts at 2pm and once again the cricket field will be packed with attractions new and old.

Delicious sandwiches, cakes and pastries will be served throughout the day in the award-winning tea room.

There will be traditional favourites like the bottle stall and the coconut shy.

James Horne of Lightcliffe Cricket Club said: “We are confident of another fantastic day and the early forecast is for sunshine and sizzling temperatures. Everything is in place for a bumper day. We are delighted to welcome back Peppa Pig which is always a huge draw.

“All we need is the forecasted good weather and people from the local community to support us. We have always been lucky in both respects, and we are really grateful for the support we receive from local people, shops, and businesses.

“Let’s hope for another fantastic day and a record breaking turnout.”
