was a great success and we would not have been able to do
it without help. Normally we would not mention names for
fear of leaving out important people but we feel there should
be some mention of just a few individuals. We are very grateful
for the support given to the event by Gordon and Margaret
Lucas not just during the day but on the lead up to it.
They have given ourselves and the traders tremendous support
and we thank them most sincerely.
those individuals who braved the exposed areas (inside and
out) of the Market Place to set up their stalls - we thank
you for your support. It is understood you did very well
the shops who bravely ventured into opening at a different
time to usual. We hope to all had a successful day of trading.
Thank you for your support. To the Town Band who provided
very cheerful carols and other music, thank you very much.
We hope to see you again at another event.
to Iris Price for supplying traditional costumes to the
stallholders. To Admiral Lord Nelson (John Price) who made
an appearance during the afternoon. We understand both of
these individuals also helped with the band collection boxes.
Thanks also must go to the staff of the Heritage Centre
who not only did sterling work on the day but had been taking
bookings and answering queries since October. Finally to
all of those who visited the Market to look, to listen and/or
to buy, thank you for supporting us again.
Greetings to Everyone
