Members of The Stephen Carey Fund were delighted to play their small part in helping make this first fun day in Alnmouth a success.
The weather was kind with the sun shining and only a stiff breeze to contend with which soon faded. It wasn’t long before the car park began to fill and the public meandered their way around the various stalls and activities, the kids loved the tea cups whilst the adults found comfort in the ‘beer cups’.
Pleasing was how busy the emergency services displays were with the North East Ambulance Service team rarely having a few minutes to themselves and both kids and adults interested to look around the fire engines that took turns on the show field.
The Tug Of War proved to be the crowd puller to mark the end of the organised events in the early evening and the with the hog roast firing up the beer tent became the social gathering point as everyone basked in the fantastic weather.
Everyone left with smiles and stories to tell, a great first year for the Alnmouth community.
Details of the monies raised for all organisations will be revealed later this week.
