Organisers of Camelot Theme Park's annual Knights in Shining Armour search have reported unusually low numbers of children nominated from Chorley.

A recent search for special children that have shown outstanding bravery, care for others or displayed exceptional courage has prompted a huge response from all over the region with the exception of Chorley.

Now the theme park is calling on people to show that the area is full of children who make a difference to their family and the community they live in.

A spokesman for Camelot Theme Park said: "We have had a fantastic response to the Knights search from certain pockets of the region but we were surprised when the entries started coming in that the number of children nominated from Chorley were few and far between."

The search is now continuing for talented children who have had a tough time, someone who has had to cope with an illness or even a child that always try to help others at school to receive a once in a lifetime knighthood.

If you would like to nominate a child who deserves a magical treat you can put them forward to receive an honorary knighthood from Camelot's King Arthur in a very special ceremony on Saturday April 26.

Every child that is nominated will receive a family pass to Camelot.

A panel of judges will select a number of children to be invited to the private ceremony on the morning of Saturday April 26, where they will receive an honorary knighthood from Camelot's King Arthur.

Friends and family will be invited to watch their special star become a Sir' or Lady'.

In addition, the child will also receive a framed certificate and a 2008 family pass so that they can enjoy the park for a whole season free of charge!

If you are over 18 and would like to nominate a child please send in your nomination explaining why they deserve to be knighted to Knights in Shining Armour', Alexander House, Station Brow, Leyland, Lancashire, PR25 3NZ or you can e-mail knights@mtjpr.co.uk with your details.

Don't forget to include the child's full name, address and a daytime telephone number.

Alternatively you can call the hotline and speak to one of the team on 01772 421442.

But hurry the closing date for nominations next Wednesday, April 16.
