AROUND 150 people turned out for the second annual Big Bash on Bemerton event.

It was held outside on Gainsborough Close on Saturday, October 16.

Organisers said they were “pleased to see so many people, enjoying chatting to their neighbours.”

The event was spearheaded by the local youth charity Rise:61 who provided the BBQ and the two bouncy castles.

Local children also were also treated to another brilliant live show from Jonathan the Jester, who donated his time and equipment for free for a second year running.

Seasalt Salisbury generously donated £500 to the event, after the shop team nominated Rise:61 as the charity they’d like to support through Seasalt Giving.

The Big Bash events are designed to celebrate all that has been achieved by local residents in the preceding year and bring people together.

Robin Imeson, Director of Rise:61, said “ We are so happy that the second annual Big Bash went so well.

"We love the community we live and work in so much and it’s always fun to get a chance to hang out with our friends and partners here. We are hoping next year will be even bigger and better but would like to thank everyone who came out and helped make it possible, as well as Seasalt Salisbury for their generous support.”
