Youngsters will celebrate a spring tradition at an annual maypole dance this weekend.

Lock Lane Community Group will lead a dance troupe from Castleford’s riverside to the centre of town.

The fun starts at 10.30am on the bridge and will finish in the pedestrian area on Carlton Street at around midday.

Former mayor and councillor Winnie McLoughlin will kick of the celebrations by crowning the maypole with other community leaders.

Castleford Maypole Dance Troupe will provide the morning’s entertainment alongside talent from the Victoria School of Dance.
