Throughout the day Bridlington Gold Radio road show presenter Mike Hammond did an excellent job of keeping the music playing, making announcements, introducing live entertainment and encouraging people to enjoy the day and raise funds for the two very worthy causes.

The crowds were treated to some fantastic routines by the Red Admiral Majorettes and kept entertained by local musicians including several regulars from Flamborough Open mic.

A BBQ put on by lifeboat crew and supporters proved very popular as did the refreshments tent , both sponsored by local businesses.

Blessed with glorious weather and fantastic turnout, the many stalls, attractions and all who attended had a brilliant day.
