Forget the rain that is lashing down, abandon the bare trees and dark grey clouds and the cold which is still to come and imagine it is a beautiful sunny day and you are on the beach. Now see yourself on a hot sunny day in August, in Silverton. Yes, that’s it, August 3rd 2019 Silverton Sands, because Street Market is throwing a beach party and everyone is invited.
Last year over 2,500 people came to the Street Market raising over £6,000 which was shared out with all the participating groups and organisations. Feedback from Food sellers is that they had a brilliant day and stallholders were pleased with the crowds and their sales. Let’s make it even better next year, maybe reach the target of £7,000?
Details have yet to be finalised but ideas so far, and some are more sensible than others, include: a volleyball competition, Punch and Judy show, sandcastle and sand sculpture competition, best beachware/ sunglasses/swimming hat on Silverton Sands, coconut shy, most original message in a bottle, pin the tail on the donkey or guess the number of matchsticks in the lovely galleon. Any and all suggestions are welcome. please send them to Andy Mathers, Street Market Chair : firstname.lastname@example.org. Come in fancy dress and you could win a prize.
Following on from the success in 2017 there will be another fantastic evening event which Suzanne and her team are already organising. Plans so far include a hog roast, 3 popular bands and an in house bar.
Will you be beach ready for Silverton Sands Beach Party, Saturday 3rd August 2019?
