Everyone welcome to join in festivities on Sunday
Friends, families and fun lovers of all ages are invited to ‘go fly a kite’ above Jacob’s Ladder beach on Sunday (May 15).
Organised by the Catholic Church in Sidmouth, this will mark the fifth annual event to celebrate Pentecost – a Christian festival traditionally known as Whitsun.
The festivities will take place from noon onwards on the green land adjacent to Peak Hill.
Everyone is welcome to attend and plenty of fun is promised, with groups being particularly encouraged to bring a picnic this year.
