BARWELL BY THE SEA ANOTHER HUGE SUCCESS

BARWELL BY THE SEA ANOTHER HUGE SUCCESS

Despite a drizzly start this year's Barwell By the Sea event was another huge success.

Chair of the Barwell Parish Council Events Committee, Councillor Mathew Hulbert, says "It was a wonderful occasion, enjoyed by all who were part of it. The weather was kind to us and it was great to see people of all ages, from toddlers to senior citizens, enjoying this taste of beach life in our village. As well as several fair-ground rides, bouncy castle, craft stalls and a visit from the local Fire Brigade and Police, the event also had the added attraction again of Donkey Rides which proved to be very popular with the little ones.

As a Parish Council we constantly strive to give something back to the community and hope that our next event, Brass on The Grass on the 8th September is as popular". » Less
