Everyone was a winner in sports day
The contestants came from Berwick, north Northumberland and the Scottish Borders to the new leisure centre to play more than 10 sports, including carpet bowls, indoor curling, and, for the first time, swimming in the new pool.
The Spirit of Sport sports day was organised by Rotary Club members and friends, and the games were adapted where necessary.
For each event, a winner and runner-up took home a trophy, with Endeavour awards for the best all-rounders.
Family members (and some of the club helpers) tried out games they had never played before and there were smiles and laughs all day.
Active Northumberland opened up the facilities and their staff helped on the day, for which the club is very grateful.
There was also very generous sponsorship from the Berwick branch of Howdens which covered the costs of the day and meant that every participant went home with a medal, certificate and a football.
Trophies were presented by club president Grant Forbes to applause and cheers for everyone who took part.
Tara Foggon, depot manager of the Berwick branch of Howdens, not only presented the medals but met many of the players and took part enthusiastically in the sports herself.
