More than half of the stalls al­ready booked for fes­ti­val

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

COM­MU­NITY groups and char­i­ties are be­ing en­cour­aged to book their stall in ad­vance to avoid dis­ap­point­ment for the Whit­tle­sey Fes­ti­val.

More than half the al­lot­ted spa­ces have now been sold and or­gan­is­ers want to make sure that no-one misses out.

Prepa­ra­tions for the fes­ti­val, which will take over the town cen­tre on Septem­ber 12, are gath­er­ing mo­men­tum and it prom­ises to be an ex­cit­ing day out for all the fam­ily.

Whit­tle­sey Town Councillor Pauline Edge said: “We would like to in­vite lo­cal com­mu­nity groups and char­i­ties to get in touch so they can take ad­van­tage of the stall space we have.”

Well over 5,000 peo­ple came to en­joy the var­i­ous stalls and at­trac­tions at last year’s event and or­gan­is­ers want to top that fig­ure.

From sam­pling a taste of Italy on the Ital­ian mar­ket to lis­ten­ing to the sounds of Scot­land dur­ing Peter­bor­ough High­land Pipe Band’s march through the town’s streets there was some­thing to en­ter­tain ev­ery­one last year.

To se­cure a stall at this year’s event peo­ple are ad­vise to book in ad­vance by com­plet­ing and re­turn­ing a fes­ti­val book­ing form.

These forms can be ob­tained from Fen­land District Coun­cil’s mar­kets and events team on 01354 622565.

Any­one who would like more in­for­ma­tion about the fes­ti­val ac­tiv­i­ties should call Cllr Edge on 01733 208414 or Jenny Parker on 01733 351005. Al­ter­na­tively, they can send an e-mail to whit­tle­sey­town­coun­cil@bt­con­nect.com2
