The Island of Cumbrae Tourist Association would like to thank a lot of people for putting in the time and effort to make this year’s September weekend a huge success.

Firstly, although it seems to pat ourselves on the back we would like to thank the organisers of the event, the silent team of people organised and led by the Island of Cumbrae Tourist Association, without them this would not be possible. It takes many years of practice to become that good. Thanks.
We would also like to thank the people who volunteered on the weekend and those who donated and collected throughout the year to raise funds to make this happen
Midnight storm for one of the best firework displays we have seen, rivalling the big events in major cities. Words like Spectacular, Amazing, Wonderful have been used to describe it, rightfully enough
The Padella Light makers who did an amazing job in making approximately 3000 of the little well-loved lights. Sadly these guys are retiring after 12 years. Thanks again for all the help throughout the time.
All the people who got involved in the events that went on throughout the weekend from Mini Millports got talent through to the crabbing contest the weekend we believe was a huge success.
And of course we can’t forget Mother Nature for organising an amazing day weather wise   lot
