A BUSY programme of team games and dancing displays along with various stalls ensured there was something for everyone at the Pulteneytown People's Project fun day. The event, held in the grounds of Wick South Primary School on Sunday afternoon, raised 682.49. The money will be used to subsidise PPP's popular bus trips, making them as affordable as possible for local families.

David Dunnett, the PPP chairman, said: "It was great to see so many people from the community turning up and playing their part in ensuring that our fourth annual fun day was such a success. Once again it was a real family day out."

After a dull start with a few spots of light rain, the weather brightened up considerably and the sun shone for most of the afternoon. There were displays by majorettes and dancers and a series of team games along with a trampoline and an assortment of stalls. The barbecue proved as popular as ever, with locally-produced burgers, steak rolls and hot dogs on offer.

A junior five-a-side football tournament took place throughout the afternoon, with three teams each in two sections.
The winners of the older age group were the "All-Stars" - Grant MacNab, Graham MacNab, Jack Henry, Craig Nicolson and Bryan Reid. Victory in the younger age group went to the "Superstars". Their squad comprised Daniel Budge, Bradley Thomson, Saleem Ahmed, John Budge, James Mackay, Paul Cameron and Alan Hughes.

Afterwards there was a penalty-kick competition, with all the players taking part, and the winner was 10-year-old Richard Budge.
