Bembridge Harbour Family Fun Weekend
2020 Family Fun Weekend - 31st July to 2nd August
Sadly, due to the contining restrictions on gatherings and the need for social distancing, this year's Family Fun Weekend event had to be cancelled. However, the Harbour Team decided that some safe-distanced family group fun was a must, so ....
Saturday morning was spent building kites, decorating boats and masquerading as pirates. The afternoon was spent on the beach, constructing castles, creating sculptures (every one a prize winner!), and with everyone joining in a very noisy family bucket relay .... great fun! The Duver Cafe team cooked up a delectable BBQ in the evening.
Sunday morning saw kite flying on St Helens Duver - although not all got off the ground for very long, it was great fun trying, and everyone had smiles on their faces!
Results of the Best Decorated Boat & Fancy Dress Competition:
MACAVITY - Zac and Ellie, both aged 5, their Pirate Ship’s Dog, Zeva, and assorted grown up pirates
GO - a whole family of swashbuckling pirates led by Grace aged 4 and Oscar aged 2 ½
MINDEN - decorated top to toe with flags, including a selection which had belonged to 11-year old Ollie’s Great-Grandfather and only come out on very special occasions.
BLACK DOG - a beautiful black wooden ketch, decorated all over with flags.
We are already looking at potential dates for 2021's Family Fun Weekend, which will be announced asap ...
