KIND weather and excellent entertainment saw refreshment stalls at this year’s Flamborough Gala sell out for the first time ever - with up to 2,000 people turning out for the annual event.

Organised by members of Flamborough Sports Club Trust, this year’s event raised around £5,500 for the Sports Club - with the bulk to go towards providing a new tractor.

Craig Redhead, of the trust, said that for the first time he can remember the tea stall, the hog roast and the barbecue all sold out on the day.

“It was a fantastic day, the weather was kind to us and people from the village, and from further afield, came along to support the event,” said Craig.

“There were up to 2,000 people that came along on Sunday and everyone enjoyed the entertainment - the fun dog show, the magician and the birds of prey displays were particularly popular. We also had live music in the bar, and that went down very well with a lot of people relaxing with a few drinks towards the end of the day and listening to the music.

“We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who helped organise the event and those who came along.”
