12:30pm Wednesday 25th June 2014 in News
SILVERDALE villagers were out in force on Saturday to support the annual field day.
Organisers said there was a ‘fantastic’ turnout for the fancy dress competition, and the Morecambe Marching Band led the grand parade through the village centre.

At the Village Institute, the Rose Bud Princess was crowned, locally-sourced burgers and sausages were barbecued and cream teas and ice creams were enjoyed in the sunshine.
The Fire Brigade put on a display and the field races were an enormous success, culminating in the annual ‘Pepper Pot’ fell race and the tug-of-war – which this year was won by the ladies of the village.
One of the organisers, Fleur McCarten, said: “This was once again a truly fantastic, traditional, fun-filled family day made possible by the generosity of sponsors and most of all by the team of volunteers who make it all possible.”
