Arbroath Sea Fest Donates to Local Organisations

Arbroath Sea Fest Donates to Local Organisations

As preparations begin in earnest for Arbroath Sea Fest 2014, on Thursday, July 17, the committee responsible for this highly-successful annual event presented cheques to three local organisations – Arbroath Rugby Club, Arbroath Sea Cadets and 2422 (Arbroath) Squadron, Air Training Corps.

“This is our way of saying thank you to these groups for their invaluable assistance at last year’s Arbroath Sea Fest,” said Lynn Cameron, treasurer of Arbroath Sea Fest, which will take place at Arbroath Harbour on August 9/10, 2014.

“Arbroath Sea Fest is all about giving the 25,000 people who come along the best possible day out and showcasing the town’s fabulous businesses, organisations, live music, family entertainment and, of course, seafaring heritage – it’s not about fundraising,” stressed Lynn. “However, we have to cover the substantial and ever-rising costs of putting on such a massive event, while also building up a contingency fund for future Sea Fests, which is why we charge a small entrance fee and also charge stallholders.

“We are only too aware of the invaluable support provided to us by local organisations, whether they’re involved in entertaining the thousands of people who flock to Arbroath Harbour during the Sea Fest weekend or are involved in marshalling, collecting entrance fees or picking up litter. As a result, we like to donate any additional funds to voluntary groups who were involved in that year’s Arbroath Sea Fest and, over the years, Arbroath Sea Fest has donated thousands of pounds to a variety of highly worthwhile, and very helpful, local organisations.”

In recognition of their assistance at Arbroath Sea Fest 2013, Arbroath Rugby Club received a donation of £700, while Arbroath Sea Cadets and 2422 (Arbroath) Squadron, Air Training Corps each received a donation of £200.

“We’re delighted that the Air Cadets’ contribution to last year’s Sea Fest has been acknowledged by this very much-appreciated donation,” said Flight Sergeant Scott Ross, OC of 2422 (Arbroath) Squadron, Royal Air Force Air Cadets.

Carnival atmosphere in Brechin for the Harley Davidson ride out and Worlds Longest ground based Waterslide at 200 metres. We’ve captured some of the crowds, the bikes and the brave souls attempting that waterslide.

At 200 metres downhill it may have been the worlds longest land based water slide but possibly not the fastest depending on how the laws of physics were treating you.  However there was certainly no shortage of people young, old and possibly insane enough to keep throwing themselves at the challenge. Organised by Bravo Brechin the waterslide took place on the same day as the Harley Davidson motorcycle ride out to the home of the Davidson name in Angus.

Brechin’s City Road was closed for the challenge and everyone certainly got into the spirit of the day with a carnival atmosphere in Brechin – even the local Caledonian Railway put on a special Frying Scotsman service serving Fish and Chips on the train.

There was a carnival atmosphere in Brechin this afternoon with the Harley Davidson ride out, Waterslide and Street Fair. It didn’t matter who you were you just grabbed a guitar – real or inflatable – and partied on. Official 11 piece band Diva 50 are joined by two young members of the audience.

Motorcycles filled the streets of Brechin for the third Harley Davidson ride out in the city. Bikes of all shapes, sizes and makes took part in the ride out today which left Brechin at 12 noon for the third ride out to the home of the Davidson name in Angus Alexander and Mary Davidson’s cottage in Aberlemno. Alexander Davidson left for America in 1857 and it was his three grandchildren who helped start the company which would become such a famous brand. Local retailers helped by displaying black and orange balloons outside their premises and the closed streets allowed a carnival atmosphere in the city.
