Review of the event

The Castle Point Show was was cancelled sadly, due to a water logged event site.

Marina Mightier was very disappointed that her visit to this watery district had to be cancelled and even more keen to visit now she has heard the environment is not dissimilar to her homeland.

Special arrangements were made for Marina to visit Castle Point district accompanied by her entourage on Thursday 22nd June to collect her fifth glass bead. School children came along from Hadleigh Junior, Kent Hill and King John Schools, to meet Marina Mightier and see the presentation of the glass bead outside the council offices.

Sparks will Fly in Castle Point would like to thank The Appleton School dancers for all their hard work preparing to process with Marina.  Good luck with your exams all of you!

Councillor Pam Challis, Leader of Castle Point Borough Council said "Today was fantastic. There was so many children here, it was thrilling to see their faces and it will be something they remember."
