DESPITE the on-off rain on Saturday there was plenty to occupy people at this year’s Golcar Lily Day.
Organiser Sue Starr said activities were put on both indoors and outdoors around the Colne Valley village.
She said: “It went very well indeed, we all managed to dodge the showers – we Golcar folk don’t melt.
“The art workshops were very, very popular – they were intended to be just for the children but a lot of adults got involved as well.”
Due to the weather the Spitfire fly-past on Saturday had to be cancelled, but the demonstration, piloted by Sqdn Leader Duncan Mason, was rearranged for Sunday.
In Jubilee Square bands from Golcar, Marsden, Grange Moor and Slaithwaite entertained the crowds.
While at the community centre people watched maypole dancing and belly dancing performances.
Golcar Baptist Church welcomed Slaithwaite Philharmonic Light Orchestra, Hi-Jinx magic show and The Man in the Street acoustic rock band.
While at Providence Methodist Church there was a range of music from African drumming to a ladies choir.
Children escaped the weather and Colne Valley Museum story tellers told them tales around the fire.
In Town End car park visitors browsed a whole range of stalls.
While at Golcar J, I and N School they held an art and storytelling day.
Sue said: “The Golcar Lily Day group put a huge amount of labour and imagination into providing and funding the music, the art workshops and all the other entertainment throughout the village.”
On Friday, revellers got in the mood with a 40s inspired evening at Golcar Liberal Club.
Huddersfield University big band played all the old songs and people dressed up in wartime dress.
