I don't know if you personally got to the first ever Bangor in Bloom festival, but if you didn't then you missed a great day.
The organisers were a little apprehensive at first and didn't know how it would all pan out, but they needn't have worried as the weather was kind and the crowds flooded in all day long.
Demonstrations my the Appolo Majorettes went down a treat as did the Silver Band.
Mr Douglas Madge proved to be a very hard working Mayor during his term in office and this year year has not changed a thing. Along with his team of helpers including June Forsyth and Jeanne Molyneux (forgive me for not naming everyone) the event was well organised and well supported by the business community. All the photos and details can be found on their brand new website www.BangorEye.com/bib and plans are already on the way to repeat the event and make it an annual festival in the Bangor calendar.
The proceedings were opened by the Mayor Mr Derek Hainge and trophies were donated by different businesses.
It is estimated that a few thousand people visited the event throughout the day and enjoyed a crafts fair marquee to boot.
Bouncy castles, Syrcas Circus and all the fun of a traditional community festival was enjoyed by everyone and our congratulations and thanks goes to everyone involved in this fantastic day.
See you sooooon.
