Battery birthday

I would like to thank the Blyth Battery for their amazing and unique gift to my son on his eighth birthday.

After I rented a beach hut and decked it out Second World War style, volunteers from the Battery invited him and his friends to take part in a drill with some soldiers in front of our beach hut.

As if this wasn’t amazing enough, they then allowed him to detonate some mines on the beach!

My son and his friends thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience and we would recommend a day at the Battery to anyone.

There are loads more activities to do there over the summer and there is another re-enactment weekend in September.

Thank you so much to all of the volunteers and everyone else who helped make this the best birthday party ever.
