“The best boys and girls had a fantastic time. As did Mabel Currie, who opened the event. They all enjoyed their day.

“You can tell the difference when the sun is out and people are enjoying themselves. Sitting on the grass in the park.

“It was a great turnout. I’m proud of the community.

“There were no hitches on the day, everything went well.
