Community / Big Summer Spree promises family friendly fun

First Foot Soldiers will top a bill of live music at the Clickimin event

A FAMILY friendly event will take place later this month in Lerwick to celebrate the end of summer and “bring people together after a difficult year”.

The ‘Big Summer Spree’ will take place at the Clickimin on Saturday 28 August from 11am to 5pm.

There will be a host of things on offer, from live music to refreshments and games for bairns.


It is being put on by Shetland Recreational Trust with support from the RLNI, Voluntary Action Shetland (VAS), Shetland Islands Council Youth & Employability Services and the Relay for Life committee.

Playing live music in the Clickimin grounds will be Kirmirren, The Fiction, Peter Wood Band, the Isaac Webb Trio, North Ness Boys and First Foot Soldiers.

Activities for children include crazy golf, a coconut shy and inflatable fun in the bowls hall. There will also be swimming cycling, zorbing, an assault course and football.

Taster sessions for sports will also be held, while folk will be able to travel to the Clickimin on a free shuttle bus.

Shetland Recreational Trust said: “We are delighted to be able to offer many exciting activities for free and we want as many people to come along, try them out and enjoy this fun day event.”
