Weston-super-Mare was blessed with blue skies and sunshine at the air festival and armed forces weekend last week as the Red Arrows headlined a spectacular show.

Town centre manager Steve Townsend said the event was a ‘massive success’ and the ‘best ever’ as thousands of people filled the Beach Lawns and seafront to celebrate the armed forces.

The council’s seafront events manager Darren Fairchild said: “Visitors were treated to two days of fantastic air displays as well as an array of armed forces celebrations, including military demonstrations, static displays and stalls.

“The event was a massive success, bringing a huge boost to the local economy and was a trouble-free weekend.”
