A big thank you to our main sponsor Julian Wadden. Also to all our other local business supporters.
Another big thank you goes out to everyone who took part in our street parade and who performed in the main arena. You helped to make the day special and something that the whole community could enjoy.
Thank you to Otterspool Animal Sanctuary for hosting the dog show.
