Must see attractions at this year’s event in Mesnes Park include a Huey army attack helicopter - which will land at 10:15am - a motorbike display team; classic car show - and a flypast by the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, taking place at around 1pm.

There will also be a chance to win a Helicopter Pleasure Flight of Newton-le-Willows and the surrounding area. Raffle tickets to win the tour – for you and two friends – can be bought for just £2. Flights can also be purchased in the park at a cost of £25 per person.

Chairman of the organising committee, Councillor Seve Gomez-Aspron said: “We work extremely hard to make the show bigger and better each year, with proceeds ploughed back into the Newton and Earlestown Community Group to make this possible.

“Thank you to the local businesses that support us with sponsorship, with a special mention going to THINK Estate Agents in Earlestown for being our main sponsor this year.

“Support from the public has been massive and we hope to see that grow even bigger.”

The Newton Town Show will take place at Mesnes Park, Newton-le Willows on Saturday 6 August from 11am – 5pm.

If you have a classic car, bring it down and enter from Park Road North.

Free shuttle bus rides will be available from Earlestown to Mesnes Park on the day, courtesy of the Museum of Road Transport.
