Proved to be a great day

ONCE again the Somerset Showcase, held last Saturday in Axbridge, has proved to be a great day for residents and visitors to our county.

ONCE again the Somerset Showcase, held last Saturday in Axbridge, has proved to be a great day for residents and visitors to our county.

This was the first time the event was run by the Axbridge Chamber of Commerce and I would like to publicly thank the army of residents of Axbridge and the surrounding area who worked so hard to make this event so successful.

Many of our volunteer helpers are not members of the Chamber but felt that this was a good way to express our wonderful community spirit in Axbridge.

The town hall bistro, car parking and so much general 'goffering' was taken on by an amazing army of volunteers who have my sincere thanks and, I am sure, the thanks of everyone who attended the showcase.

It was unfortunate that the Children's Showcase planned for the Moorland Street car park had to be cancelled because 14 residents decided that the car park closure notices didn't apply to them and they left their cars in the car park well past the 6am closure time.

If they missed the notices in the car park, the two leaflet drops, the coverage in the town council newsletter, 'Oyez', the parish magazine, 'Catch This' and coverage in this newspaper they must have been living on planet Zog - or perhaps they just don't care.

From the opening ceremony performed by our town crier and carnival queen with a peal of bells from St John's Church to the last strains of jazz in the square it was a magnificent day.
