Family event for McJerrow Park

LOCKERBIE’S McJerrow Park will be filled with the sounds of family fun this Sunday.

Events committee Junction 17 will transform the park for McJunction in the Park with entertainment for all ages.
Speaking on behalf of the group, Roisin Trant said: “Junction 17’s aim has always been to put on a variety of different events that everybody in the town can get involved with.
“Our first event in May focused on the 18+ members of the town—so our next focus was to put on something that children and family could enjoy.”
Junction 17 are a group of six like-minded individuals from Lockerbie who have successfully gained funding from Annandale and Nithsdale Community Benefit Company (ANCBC), Lockerbie Community Council and Chapelcross Snowball Fund to
allow them to put on the family day.
From 1 pm to 5pm on Sunday there will be Dumfries disco dome, inflatable laser quest, fairground rides, a treasure hunt, kick rounders and the famous Kev Black Waterslide.
Roisin said: “We are keeping our fingers crossed for good weather and hope that everybody can make it.”
While McJunction in the Park has been the group’s main focus, they have also been planning a tea dance for October time, and have confirmed ABBA tribute band Swede Dreamz for November.
Not content with providing events for the town, the group have launched their website and are also hoping to bring other groups together to create an interactive community calendar.
Roisin said: “Often in Lockerbie events clash as there is no central place to see what’s on and when.
“We are encouraging all businesses and community groups to use this.”
