A big family day at Festival on the Quay

A big thank you from the team at Portishead Quays Marina to all of the people who supported our annual community fundraising event, The Festival On the Quay, on 15th July.The day was a great success and helped us to raise much needed funds for the RNLI and Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary. 
Despite the occasional light rain in the morning thousands of people attended the Marina throughout the day, enjoying the music and visiting the stalls that lined the apron outside Hall & Woodhouse. 
Special thanks go to the stall holders and boat owners who donated prizes and helped with the raffle and tombola, the Newfoundland Rescue Dogs who raised money for Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary and the staff at Hall & Woodhouse for supporting the event. The RNLI Beach Buddies gave out lots of safety advice to the children and their parents with their puppet shows which ran all day and HM Coastguards were on hand to talk about their rescue work.
The disco was provided by Music Mike who gave up his time for free and we were lucky enough to have the brilliant band ‘Don’t Feed The Seagulls’ to keep the music and dancing going on into the evening.  We were also joined by Bristol Zoo who bought along a very special visitor, Denzel, their 4 metre long animatronic dinosaur.
Members from Portishead Cruising Club took part in a race out on the water which was won by the yacht Rollercoaster, congratulations to those on board. 
It was a great day for all the family, hope to see you all there again next year!
