Wymondham goes green to celebrate farmers’ market anniversary
Wymondham Farmers' Market celebrated its 12th anniversary at the weekend with a green-themed St Patrick's Day inspired event.
Businesses and community groups joined forces for the 'Wymondham Goes Green' event on Saturday.
Wymondham mayor Neil Ward joined traders and fellow farmers' markets organisers from Dereham and Aylsham, to cut a celebratory cake, made by Wymondham Country Market producer and stallholders' representative Jenny Lysons.
Wymondham Flower Club made a guest appearance at the market with their Mother's Day flower arrangements. They also provided temporary shelter for the 4th Wymondham Guides, as they displayed their three-globe sculpture, made as part of the World Thinking Day.
The talking point of the day was the presence of a Smart car, covered in artificial grass and owned by Spooner Row-based M& N Horticultural Ltd.
Other activities included a community car wash at Bartram's Funeral Directors by Wymondham Young Farmers' to raise funds for Big C, a wildlife walk around Tolls Meadow led by Wymondham Nature Group, a coffee morning to highlight the new facilities being installed at Priory Gardens Bowls Club and a book launch in Wymondham Abbey.
The next community involvement event in Wymondham, organised by the locally-based Activity Team, will be a Windmill Day on May 12. For more information contact 01953 605434 or visit www.activityteam.org
