Families flocked to the Fish Sands on Monday afternoon to hunt for hidden pieces of ‘treasure’ buried beneath the sand which they exchanged for various cash prizes.

The event was sponsored by Keith Gray Roofing and Hartlepool Carnival Committee were delighted with the turnout.

Youngsters were back on the Fish Sands on Tuesday for the popular Sand Design event sponsored by Julie Bone Catering which also attracted lots of children.
