Winkle Island transformed into Fantasy Island
Winkle Island transformed into Fantasy Island

WINKLE Island in the Old Town was last weekend transformed into Fantasy Island complete with mermaid, pirates, sand dunes and a wealth of entertainment.

The event, part of the Seafood and Wine programme, organised by the Winkle Club, raised £1,000 thanks to generous donations by the public, which will go to local good causes.

A giant mermaid, made of papier-maché, by Radiator Arts group, took up residence this year, which was the third year that Winkle Island had been transformed. On the Saturday (September 20) a children’s entertainer amused the crowds, while on Sunday, local bands took centre stage.
