A fun day is being held in Newbold to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.

The event is in memory of Newbold man Pete ‘Sailsy’ Diack, 44, who died from a series of heart attacks while working away.

One of the organisers is Pete’s sister Joanne Houghton, who said everyone is welcome to the event at the Boat Inn, Main Street. It starts at 1pm next Sunday (May 25).

Joanne said: “We have lots going on including stalls, bouncy castle, sumo suit, bands, raffle and refreshments.”

There’s also a children’s entertainer and face painting.

Organisers are appealing for businesses to donate their services to raise money in an auction. Telephone 079355 71414 or (01788) 537999 if you would like to help or need more information.
