Pack some sandwiches and get down to Rock Park on Sunday.

FAMILIES are being invited to grab a blanket and head to Barnstaple’s Rock Park for a picnic with a difference on Sunday.

The Picnic in the Park is being held by Barnstaple Lions Club and Barnstaple Town Council to raise money for worthy causes and to offer people a great day out.

Donkey rides, Punch and Judy shows, and a flying visit by Chivenor’s Sea King search and rescue helicopter will be just some of the host of attractions on offer from 11am to 4pm.

Lions club secretary Andy Shiner said: “Just grab a picnic and a blanket and get yourself down to Rock Park.

“It’s a great chance to meet up with friends and family and enjoy some good old fashioned fun.”
