Bank Holiday Success

40,000 were in Hoylake, watching the Red Arrows, for the RNLI Lifeboat Open Day, and 13,000 attended the first annual Wirral Food and Drink Festival.

Organisers of the Food and Drink Festival are now hoping that they will be able to make the event a yearly fixture on Wirral’s calendar, while it is expected that the Lifeboat Open Day has smashed last year’s fundraising total of £27,000.

Anne Benson, one of the volunteers who organised the event (the Food and Drink festival), said many stallholders had said it was the best festival they had attended and would like to return next year.

She had said how amazed she was as streams of people flooded into the festival site as it opened on Sunday, and later queues formed on the roads outside with many more waiting to enter.

She said: “We’ve had fantastic support from everyone who has come here as well as from all the volunteers who have helped make it so successful.

“It would be nice if we could repeat that success again next year.”

If you were at either event over the weekend, and have stories or pictures you would like to share, please comment below or email us at leftbank@nerdshack.com (apologies for anyone who tried to email last week from the blog, but I misspelled the email address, which was highly clever of me! This is the correct one to use.)
