The May 25th "Spring into Summer" Market was a great success, thanks to loads of enthusiastic input by many of our regular stallholders, contributions from local community groups and musicians and some glorious sunshine.
Craft and art workshops for the youngsters produced some lovely spring flower garlands and pictures of Knighton, as well as drawing in some new and younger visitors to the market. Musicians entertained us all, while the Wool Against Weapons campaigners staged a "knit-in" aiming to add to the required 7 miles of pink scarf required to link the Aldermaston and Burghfield nuclear weapons establishments. The local environmental group, TVEG, ran a seedling swap and pupils from Whitton Primary School ran a fundraising stall. Then there was a raffle with some great prizes donated by stallholders, a lucky dip and a "Name the Sheep" competition to establish what we are to call our new logo. In short, it was a real community affair with lots of activity and a great atmosphere.
Now we have to decide when our next "special" market will be.
Oh, by the way, the woolly shopper on our logo is now officially named Shauna Sheep.
