Mum was the word on everyone’s lips last Saturday as Main Street, My Street Bangor joined forces with Rebecca McKinney and Cool FM to celebrate Mother’s Day weekend in style.

There were balloons for kids and chocolate hearts for Mums handed out by the Cool FM Street Team, a kids craft workshop making Mother’s Day bracelets in Excel Clothing, beauty demos in Menarys and Boots, a grand hamper draw in Boots, spot prizes from the Heatherlea and Bob & Berts and walkabout fun from Magic George. The highlight of the event was a special Afternoon Tea in Bob & Berts in Bangor for the finalists of the Love your Mum competition.

Up for grabs at the event was the star prize of a Weekend Break to Dublin courtesy of the team at Oasis Travel on Upper Main Street, a luxury Ted Baker suitcase from Excel Clothing and a fabulous hamper of beauty treats from Menarys. Runners up were not disappointed either going home with a voucher for £100 from either Excel Clothing, Mackey Opticians or Menarys.

With the finalists suitably treated to a delicious afternoon tea, excitement was palpable as the 5 finalists were interviewed by Rebecca McKinney from the Cool FM Breakfast show and then took their place beside 5 mini suitcases…each one containing a prize! It was Bangor mum, Caroline Morrison who went home with the top prize to the delight of her young son and husband. A perfect start to Mother’s Day!
