PREPARATIONS are well underway for the Party on the Park at the recreation ground on Sunday, August 24.

Live bands and lots of attractions for all the family, including children’s games and a tug-of-war competition, are on offer from noon to 8pm, and visitors are welcome to take a picnic.

Anyone who wants to set up a stand, including tombolas, raffles and hook a duck, can still get involved – message the organisers on Facebook by searching IlminsterPOP.
