St. Wilfrid's Fair - 21-22 Oct 05
The second day was also a success. I enjoyed a plate of Medieval foods, only a £1 and still it raised money for St Mary's and St Peters. This was the Stockport Heritage Trust stall. Next to it was a Heritage exhibition and on the reverse side the Covered Market Hall consultation. As I ate my platter of pheasant, venison, mushroom and fish, I overheard some ladies remember the good old days of the Market, when it stayed open "until almost midnight". Those days may have gone, but it was certainly lively this afternoon.
Our Heritage Centre was also kept busy, thanks to Alan rounding up visitors from the market. Volunteers, Eric, Sheila, Grace and Jean kept the place running.
