Fraserburgh Super Saturdays

Fraserburgh Super Saturday on July 9, 2016, at Saltoun Square and Broad Street, which featured the brother and sister act M2, namely Sarah and Duncan Whyte, who had people dancing in the street. The other big attraction was the climbing wall, which both adults and youngsters tackled! The theme of this month's Super Saturday was Get Fit Fraserburgh so healthy eating and fitness was to the fore, with demos from clubs across the district.
