A SERIES of family activities staged across Keighley during the summer has been hailed as a success.

The town council funded a host of free Mini Bounce Planet and Play In Parks sessions, held in collaboration with the Bradford Community Play & Development Team.

Venues included Cliffe Castle; Victoria, Lund and Devonshire parks; Long Lee and Worth Valley primary schools; the Bronte playing fields; Burgess Fields, Morton Institute and Fell Lane Scout hut.

The Mini Bounce Planet sessions included Spider Mountain, a slide, assault course and play zones.

And Play In Parks featured activities ranging from swing ball and rounders to giant snakes-and-ladders and skipping.

Councillor Abdul Shohid, chair of the town council's events and community action committee, said: "The success of the Mini Bounce Planet and Play In Parks sessions is testament to the commitment of Keighley Town Council towards community engagement, wellbeing and the creation of spaces where families can come together.

"We would like to extend our gratitude to all the participants, volunteers and partners who contributed towards making these sessions an enriching and memorable experience for everyone involved.

"We hope to extend the provision of open access activities for children and young people across the year."
