Ilfracombe Round Table have hailed their 2016 Southwest Birdman event as the "Best Ever" after over 12,000 members of the public enjoyed the pier jumping spectacle. This year, RTBI National President Mark House chose to jump off the pier too!
As well as the traditional flying event, live music and stalls entertained the public well into the night.
Leo Cooper from Ilfracombe Round Table said, "
“The weather has been fantastic, the standard of craft and people jumping in has been amazing and a great standard of music too,” he said.
“It’s been a big impact on the local economy, not to mention the money we raise for local good causes. Last year we did £10,000 and we hope to match that, as every penny goes back into the community.
“Thank you to all our sponsors and those who supported it, without them it would not be possible.”
