GOLCAR Lily Day organiser Sue Starr said preparations for the fourth event were going very well and that there would be a few subtle changes this year.
She said: “It’s getting very close now.
“This year we’ve paid for artists to go into every school in Golcar before the event.
“The work will be displayed in the various churches around the village.
“We’re also having a big art workshop in Golcar Community Centre.”
The drop in workshop will feature a host of activities including weaving and painting for anyone to try out.
And face-painters will also be roaming the village after the organisers teamed up with Kirklees Council to train a team of 10 people.
Sue said the festival had grown a bit in size and events would stretch across the village from Scapegoat Hill to Bolster Moor.
“There’s loads of music in every building and Morris dancing.
“And we’re really hoping for good weather for the Golcar Sing this year.
“We were a bit unlucky last year and had to go inside – but regardless of the weather everything happens whether it rains or shines.”
