27 Sep 2012

Well our Festival is over for another year - the weather proved a little challenging for our Sunday Market but we still managed a very good turn out with tasty and diverse selection of stalls and people were determined to come along and have a good time.

One particular highlight was the magnificient shire horses from Duchy Home Farm - one of their last visits for the foreseeable future - they have been a beautiful sight in town and we will all miss them greatly.

Keep an eye for news for 2013 - tentative dates are 18th-22nd September 2013

Our Newsletter will continue to be sent out on a regular basis with food and drink happenings and special offers on offer - to sign up just drop us an email.

Apart from that - a huge thank you to everyone who made this year happen and we look forward to seeing you all next year

Regards
