ORGANISERS are hoping to run Barnoldswick Beach over a four-week period in August.

The event, which is on Barnoldswick town square, is due to start this Saturday (Aug 2) and run until Saturday, August 30.

Two days will be spent at the beginning and end of the event setting up and clearing away 20 tonnes of sand for the 'inland' beach.

However, organisers are appealing for volunteers to come forward so the beach can be opened on a daily basis.

It is anticipated that the beach, which is organised by Barnoldswick Town Council, will be open from 10am to 4pm.

To volunteer, contact Lindsay Gaskell on 01282 816936 or email or Joanne Geldard 01282 818253 or email
