FUN seekers flocked to Colne over the weekend to enjoy a family-friendly music festival.

The Green that Rocks event saw local bands entertaining crowds on the Millennium Green in Waterside.

Organised by Colne Town Council, it was the first even of its kind to be held in the town.

Coun. Dorothy Lord said: “The festival was a great success considering it was the first time it had been held and we only had a short amount of time to bring things together. I would estimate that a couple of hundred people came along, a few drifted in and out but lots stayed all afternoon and enjoyed the sunshine.”

The festival was the brainchild of local man Adam Tennant who suggested it to the town council and helped co-ordinate the five band who played on the day.

Coun. Lord said: “A huge thanks must go to Adam and everyone else who helped make the day a success. I hope it will be repeated in the future and that now more people know about it they will come along next year.”

l Organisers of the Green that Rocks festival have dealt with the bins that had blown into the river after the festival.

They had been put for safekeeping out of the way but strong winds blew them into the river.
