Free fun days took place over the weekend at the Pavilion in Witton Park, with many getting into the Commonwealth Games spirit, and enjoying the nice weather at what is a busy centre for sport within Blackburn with Darwen.

Dozens took part in fun activities over the weekend, with flag designing, and various sports activities, the order of the day.

Other activities within the park include great trails and walks, or check out the popular play areas at the Wits Adventure Play area or the Big Cover Wood.
