Their target for the event was 400 pounds, and the poor weather at the start of the day meant the takings fell a little short of this amount - so Cohen's decided to accept the challenge and raise the difference in their shop. Bob Hoey won the jar by correctly guessing 383 sweets, and declared he'd share the prize with his grandchildren

The 2016 Lantern Parade involved over 400 people, of all ages, from our community who took part in this memorable event. Who can forget seeing the parade of colourful creative pieces of art winding along the River Irwell? The river itself sparkling with little lights. A little girl said "It's like being in a fairy story"
Lots of pics on our Facebook page.
