Harry Ives, Chairman of Bathurst Park Charitable Trust added: "I'm thankful to the district council for their generous support of this year's Party in the Park. This free event brings together a professional London dance company, top local singers and a very wide range of attractions. Stalls include children's rides, face painting, bouncy castles, magic shows, puppetry, balloon sculpting, athletics, traders and even a bucking bronco!"
