ATHERTON Carnival and Sport week returns for another year of events for everyone to enjoy.

The week will be ‘countries of the world’ themed, and volunteers are needed to help organise and run competitions, from darts to quizzes. The event runs from June 5 to June 12, and starts with two fun runs on Meadowbank playing fields, of one or six miles. There will also be a parade around Atherton, led by a brass band and Scottish pipe.
