A range of activities were held on the day including stunt shows, games, prizes, food, and celebrity guests Steve Colley and Two Brothers.

“A lot of hard work had gone into the day, with staff working late the night before to help with organising and placing branding outside the store.

“Everyone who turned up on the day were amazed and enjoyed themselves – the feedback has been really good.

“Our celebrity guests were interactive and provided quality performances.

“We are thinking about making it an annual thing, but later on in the year”
