HOT tubs, fire eaters and Sumo wrestling might sound an unusual combination.

But this was just a taste of the novelty fun and games happening during a double celebration at Golden Sands Holiday Park in Cresswell.

Crowds turned out to enjoy the facility’s 20th anniversary fun day, which shared the celebrations with its chosen charity – The Royal British Legion – as a Poppy Party was also held as part of the organisation’s 90th anniversary.

The only absentees on Sunday were a Caravan of Camels due to race along Cresswell sands and give rides around the park to raise funds for the Legion. Their customised wagon broke down on route to the party.

Park owner Nigel Thompson said: “We never need an excuse to have fun and jumped at the chance to throw a double celebratory event.

“Everyone was having a great time and having too much fun to take the hump about the camels’ no show. They’ve promised to come back, so we’ll have them on the beach at Cresswell very soon.”
