May 17

It’s that time of year when we hope for some great weather and a summer full of entertainment for kids and grown-ups alike. In this month’s issue, we have a varied mix with events on land and water, and hopefully something that will appeal to everyone.

Some of these events date back many years and are steeped in history, others are more recent additions to the calendar. They run like clockwork - weather permitting. All thanks to a small army of volunteers who give of their time to gather in the wee dark hours of the winter to plan, organise and fundraise.

Perhaps you feel that you would like to get involved and be a part of our local annual events. Your involvement will be rewarding for yourself and the community, so why not become a part of your local community and offer your services.
