Marilynn David We just went to Penrice as it was raining. The stalls, coffee, entertainment was really good and the friendly Volunteers were all helpful, even the Car Park Attendants.
It was very busy inside but there was a lovely atmosphere.
Thanks to all.
Lizzy Raymer It was fantastic! It was well organised I thought. The car park stewards were lovely, friendly and helpful. Yes it was crowded and hot inside but I was very pleased for the traders that they were so busy. Superb quality products and produce available! I do hope that the RNLI and the children's hospice raised loads of money - both very worthy causes which I was very happy to support :D
Alison Thomas Mum and I really Enjoyed it,super variety of crafts, thank you. It may be an idea for next time to have a different entry and exit to the sports hall if possible as the stairs did get very blocked. A lovely day tho x
Helen Dando Alan, it was amazing. Thank you so much for such a well run event. Having lots of visitors is a bonus. Fingers crossed it’s going to be good tomorrow also.
Jacqui Barrett Having travelled from Plymouth my sister and I were pleasantly surprised at your wonderful Christmas Market. There was a brilliant selection of stalls and the live music was an inspiration. As this was your first time inevitably there would be teething problems but lessons will be learnt and it can only get better. Looking forward to next year. WELL DONE
Fused Glass Alan you have done an amazing job, the congestion was a teething problem which is to be expected for a brand new event, the atmosphere and entertainment was fantastic and the stalls are fabulous. Thank you, I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of it and looking forward to tomorrow. Xx
Imogen Tomlinson It was very busy and a challenge with a pushchair and a bump but definitely worth the effort.
Maybe use a side door as an alternative exit (and entrance for those with wheels!) and have a space at the end of the isles to walk around so people don't have to double back??
Glad it was busy for all the stall holders though and hope it goes well tomorrow 😁
Jess Ratty It was brilliant! You were busy cause it’s ace, congrats to everyone!
Jo Whittier-Marshall Ibadan amazing time but maybe because I was early as things got a bit hectic later. The exit up the stairs proved difficult but, as you say, there were bound to be hitches for a first time. The bus from the station, then to Charlestown after Penrice, was good with lovely drivers. Really looking forwards to next year. Many thanks.👍
