FUN DAY - wow - what a great day! The sun shone, and lots of people and families came along to enjoy the bouncy castle, hook a duck, jumble, cakes and BBQ, taster sails and coastal rowing, then the Grand Raffle, and the model yacht raffle. We even had to repel an invasion by Darth Vader! MANY thanks to everyone who made this day possible - particularly Julia, for pulling it all together!
