The hottest day of the year so far failed to deter the thousands who flocked to Wymondham on Sunday for the second Wymondham Food & Drink Festival. With over 60 stalls in the town centre selling a wide range of food and drinks there was something for everyone. Hot food, cold food, cakes, sweets, mushrooms, charcuterie and almost every type of alcohol were just some of the delights on offer.
In addition to the food and drink stalls a number of local charities boosted their funds by running stalls and activities and the Wymondham Makers Market offered a variety of handmade crafts.
A Punch & Judy Show, Town Crier and the One Voice Glee Club Choir ensured there was plenty to keep the visitors entertained and a surprise visit by Julie Reinger as part of the Radio Norfolk Treasure Quest put the event on the map all across Norfolk.
Organised by Wymondham Rotary Satellite Group all profits will be used by them to support local charities. Bev Bulcock, leader of the organising team said that the group were delighted by the Festival's success with more than £4400 raised. "We are grateful to the many local groups and businesses who have supported us in putting on the Festival again this year" she said. "The event was sponsored by Rosedale Funeral Home, Wymondham Town Council contributed to street entertainment costs, and Morgan Sindall helped out with the road closures.
Bev added "We think everyone had a great day and we have been delighted with the positive feedback from visitors and traders, so Sunday June 23rd has already been pencilled in for next year's event.
