Sunday August 25 saw another fantastic UNISON family fun day, with UNISON ice cream and a heatwave.
There was loads for the kids to do with a bouncy castle, face painting, balloon modelling and Story Telling from Judy. There was plenty for everyone with all sorts of stalls, Indian Head Massage and Birds of Prey.
To top it all, there was great music from Alastair McDonald, Davy Robb, Ian Murdoch and the Sessions, and Fiona and John Palmer which went down a storm.
