As glorious sunshine turns to rain that can only mean one thing – school holidays!

Thankfully, the rain held off just long enough for our Family Fun Day on Saturday, July 31, allowing so many families the opportunity to enjoy the activities and free rides on offer.

After what has been a really strange time for us all it was a pleasure to see and hear so many children having fun and enjoying themselves.

Those attending also had the opportunity to enter our summer hamper competition. The contents of which have all been purchased in various shops in town, showing that you can really shop local.

Congratulations go to George and Val who guessed the price of the summer hamper goodies to within 26p of the total cost of £302.76.

Speaking of the school holidays; parents have the difficult task of keeping children entertained particularly if the weather keeps them inside.
