Maritime centre to throw party

Newbiggin Maritime Centre is celebrating its first anniversary with a family fun day.

On Saturday, from 11am till 5pm, the centre will hosts a birthday party featuring a Punch and Judy show, pony rides and a sandcastle competition.

A free concert by musicians from the town will follow from 7pm onwards.

Entrance to the fun day is free, but there will be charges for some of the activities.

“This day is a chance for us to thank all our loyal customers for their continued support and to celebrate our achievements over the last year,” said Mark Labrow, the centre’s community engagement co-ordinator.
