This month I attended a Wednesday evening litter pick around the town along with other Cllrs and public – this was organised ahead of the Puffin Festival in order to help the town look it’s best. On the subject of the Puffin Festival and the Puffin Fringe I would like to offer congratulations and thanks to all involved both on the frontline, organizing and behind the scenes. The Festival was a massive success as ever and really puts Amble on the map. This can only be done with the dedication and hard work of the events team and all other individuals and organisations who offer time and help to achieve this.
I had the pleasure of attending the Naming Ceremony of the RNLI Shannon class lifeboat the Elizabeth Leonard along with my colleague and deputy Cllr Weir. A fantastic turnout and a great chance to thank and congratulate all those involved in the fundraising effort – without which we would not have this lifeline. Great to see the lifeboat put through its paces with a display in the harbour area.
