Rainford’s first ever Summer Festival was a real scorcher – with thousands of people enjoying fun in the sun!
On a blisteringly hot summer’s day last Saturday, The Rainford Summer Festival drew crowds of over 3,000 visitors to our new state-of-the-art High School.
The Festival – which was designed to mark the completion of the £27million new school and promote local businesses – featured a packed programme of live music, food, crafts and fun for the whole family.
Visitors were treated to a wide range of attractions including performances from some of the Borough’s most talked about up-and-coming bands, an international food court and variety of games, attractions and stalls. Students from the Higher Lane school also showcased their talents in a series of performances across the day.
Rainford High School Principal Ian Young said:
“It was an amazing day and we were thrilled to see so many local people join us for our celebration of both the school and our village.
“Rainford is a vibrant community and Saturday really showed just what the area has to offer for everyone.”
The Festival drew support from a range of local businesses and is set to become a highlight of the local summer calendar for some time to come
