A Big Thank You From Lucy

I have a newfound appreciation for how much hard work it has taken over the last ten years to make the Food Festival what it was on Saturday.

These are Peter Pritchard, founding Chairman - (looking great for 93years old, Peter), Dianne, the current Secretary and myself, daughter of another founder, Maurice.

Steve, Alison, Dianne, Ian, David and myself are now the official, volunteer organisers of the Food Festival and I am honoured to be one of them. I am just about recovering from my 14 hour stint from yesterday - I don't know how you all do it!!

Litter Free Alcester and all the Marshals that again gave up their free time to help. We couldn't do it without you. Thank You all.

Steve who sorts out the electrics year in and year out - our thanks once again.

Stuart who came and played  'biffa' in the evening and saved additional hours clearing litter - Thanks.

Thanks to all the stallholders and thousands of visitors who came along and made it such a fabulous day.

West Warwickshire Scouts,Seco Tools and Dudley Coaches for the Park and Ride - Thank You all.

Finally a thank you to all Alcester organisations, businesses and local shops for your accommodation and support. You make Alcester a great town all the year round.

Steve Brown, you were right. My Dad would be proud of us all.
