CHILDREN at a village playgroup are enjoying a packed programme of summer activities.

Youngsters from the BATS (Babies and Toddlers) group, which meets at Lumbutts Methodist Church on Tuesday mornings, have been to Animal Quackers in Bacup.

They held and fed some of the animals, went on donkey rides and had a picnic in the barn.

Janet Jowett, who helps to run the playgroup, said: “They loved every minute of it.”

The group welcomes new members and has more activities lined up.
