Arghh, shiver me timbers… Little land lubbers are asked to help look around the market for the notorious pirate Captain Scallywag, whose picture will be on the wanted posters.  Entrants may even receive a doubloon reward if he can be spotted…

There will be a variety of delicious treats and essentials for a summer barbeque, picnic or ‘grub’ for ship mates! You could even take a break for a drink, a bite to eat or an ice cream from the ice cream van, while you soak up the atmosphere and listen to the wonderful musical entertainment provided by The 64 N’Ukes. It looks set to be a fun packed day all round.
