Cheers! Puffin festival ends on a high

Tommy-and-the-girls-AWAnother successful Puffin festival filled the town again this year, with good responses from the public, despite poor weather in the middle of the week meaning some events had to be cancelled.

Kate Morrison, part of the organising team, said: “Each year I have seen more involvement from businesses and the community as a whole, getting behind the idea of what the town council and community groups are trying to achieve for Amble’s future prosperity.

“Disappointment this year was the change in the weather when some events had to be cancelled. However, the children’s activities taking place inside still went ahead and I saw some interesting handmade puffins around the town. I was very pleased at how all the evening talks and events were attended by residents and the many visitors.

“There is still room to get even more people coming forward to help make next year even more successful. Volunteers are always welcome!”

Organiser Elaine Brown was pleased with the food festival and Colony music festival on the final Saturday.

“We couldn’t have wished for a better ending to an enjoyable week. Facebook users commented on the success of several stalls, which had actually sold out and others praised the variety of artisan traders and their products.

“The music festival was again very popular. We’d like to thank Mick Robertson for pulling together the line-up and overseeing the event on the day.”
