Have your say
Why was this event not publicised in advance?
Many people were not even aware that this was happening this year.
The Tourism Group should look at their publicity strategy for next year I think.
What a shame there was insufficient publicity for this event. Many people in the town didn't even know that this was taking place. Perhaps better advertising next time would be a good idea.
