Finding buried treasure

Waiting for Video...

IT has been a busy fun-filled few days on the Headland for this year’s carnival.

The event continues to go from strength to strength with organisers saying they are enjoying one of their best years ever.

They have put it down to the support of people for attending all the different events.

Yesterday, the Fish Sands were packed with youngsters digging on the beach for the annual Treasure Hunt.

It proved a great success with lots of children and parents going along to dig for buried prize tokens in the sunshine.

They handed them in to event organisers for cash prizes with £5 for gold stars.

On Sunday, the Town Square was buzzing for a free family fun day.

There were bouncy castles, face painting, displays and a children’s entertainer.

Among the highlights coming up this week are a Children’s Talent Competition.

It takes place at Headland Social Club tomorrow between 1.30pm-5pm.

It is free to enter and the first prize is £30.

A carnival spokesman said: “Once again the carnival committee would like to thank the public for their support and by making every event this year an overwhelming success.

“Although we put them on it is them that make them a success.

“We are anticipating our grand parade on Saturday will be a huge success.

“And with the raft race on Sunday it will probably be the biggest weekend we have had on the Headland for a long while.”
