Julie Stead, Chair of the Heath Residents Association, which organises the family event alongside the Northern Kite Group, said: “We hope young and old will come and visit to watch some of these spectacular kites, or even try their hand at flying their own.

“All we need now is the right wind on the right day!”

The free event will take place on Heath Common (in front of The Kings Arms pub) from 10am to 4pm on Sunday, September 24.
