‘‘We are thrilled,’’ she said.
‘‘We had record ticket sales on the gate, especially on the Sunday.
‘‘We had great support from the Guides and Scouts.
‘‘The kids loved the free train rides and I think people appreciated having things like that so they didn’t have to keep putting their hands in their pockets all the time.
‘‘We had 10 entrants in the Moira’s Got Talent show, so that was great.
‘‘The participation from all the school was just fantastic and all the artwork they created was just amazing.
‘‘I would like to thank all the volunteers and everyone who helped to make this year’s show such a success.’’
