The fun begins on the Friday afternoon with a children’s roller disco at the community centre in Dans Castle. The under 11s session will be held from 2pm to 3.30pm, while a session for older children will run from 4pm to 6pm. Both cost £3.

And the following evening, from 7.30pm to 10pm, the centre will host a ceilidh with tickets priced at £6 for adults and £3 for children. They are available to buy at the community centre and Cathy’s shop in Tow Law High Street. Guests are welcome to bring their own refreshments.

A family fun day on Millennium Green will round off the festivities on Sunday from 1pm to 8pm. Highlights will include a marquee full of stalls, climbing wall, bouncy castle, an outdoor performance of Hansel and Gretel, live music and a taekwondo demonstration.

Jenny Flynn, association secretary, said it was wonderful to celebrate the 30th anniversary and encouraged residents to join in the fun.
