Postman Pat made a detour from his rounds to visit Keighley on Saturday, 25th February, accompanied by Jess, his black and white cat.
Pat was welcomed by hundreds of children at Airedale Shopping Centre, where there was also free face-painting and balloon modelling all day.
Saturday’s event was organised by Keighley BID, funded by town centre businesses to promote Keighley to visitors and locals.
Paul Howard, the manager of the BID, said, “We had a brilliant turnout on Saturday, with lots of families enjoying the last few days of the half term and of course the chance to meet Postman Pat! We have been running events in Keighley for several months now, and we always get incredible support from the public.”
“Saturday was a fantastic day in the centre,” said Steve Seymour, Airedale Centre Manager. “It was a great chance for families to come along for a day out and for children to meet the two ever-popular characters. We love being able to host events like this for families and I’m pleased that we’re once again working closely with Keighley BID.”
