We're wrapping things up here in Tisbury, but what a superb afternoon it has been at this state-of-the-art facility. If you missed the speeches, you can watch them on our Facebook page.


There's just over half an hour left of the event here in Tisbury. So there's still time to visit one of the exhibition stands, including our health trainers, Tisbury Arts Group, Tisbury Pre-School, Tisbury History Society and much more.

Plus, there's a bouncy castle and soft play in the sports hall, balloon modelling, face painting and sports taster classes.
