Castletown Community Centre and Castletown Tidy Towns Committees held a family fun day to raise funds for the tight knit community.

It was a great success with plenty of entertainment for children and adults alike, live music, craft and food stalls, bbq and locals battled it out in a tug of war.

The community also organised its first raft race on the river as part of the summer fair. This was the second year of the community gathering and organisers are already looking forward to next year. 

Having recently open their refurbished community centre, community spirit is alive and well in Castletown.
