ALL sorts of events and activities are taking place this Bank Holiday weekend, as the summer draws to a close and the return of school draws ever closer.

A number of family activities are set to take place across the district, with fun in the park, festivals, theatre, history and more to enjoy.

There are some special events being held for the Bank Holiday, while a number of events which have been running throughout the summer continue into the weekend.

Sunday will be mainly cloudy with temperatures topping out at 19 degrees, while on Bank Holiday Monday it will be cloudy again with highs of 18 degrees.
